Gifts from Far Away

My husband just returned from a trip to Shanghai.  He brought back some fabulous yarn and some souvenirs. It appears that the wool is fingering weight and it is extremely soft.  I am thinking, of course, it will be a cardigan.

I have been working on my Tweed Cardigan, the pattern is Gooseberry  from Interweave Knits, Weekend 2009 issue.  So far the pattern has been easy to follow.  I really like how the alpaca yarn is showcased by the simplicity of the sweater design.


The alpaca yarn I bought at PA Endless Mountain Fiber Festival, the vendor's name is Times Remembered.  She has such beautiful natural alpaca hanks in sport weight and in worsted weight.  Next weekend will be my third year attending and I will be buying more alpaca if they are still there.
