My first time knitting with alpaca wool - this was 4 ply 100% alpaca from Yllotyll in Uppsala which I bought last year. Here it's in the process of becoming a pair of fingerless gloves. The gloves have since been joined by a 2x2 rib scarf which I made with the left overs so its a bit short. I love wearing them, they're really soft and warm,but I think overall I prefer knitting with cotton. The alpaca has quite a lot of give which I found annoying - probably just need to practice. The gloves are from Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick and the scarf was inspired by Tiennie's 2x2 rib items.
Another first! This is the first pic with my new camera. I bought a panasonic with a good macro lens but its also small and light.
