New Project Plan -- Parker Cardigan

I'm joining a Fiber Arts Friday blog on Wisdom Begins In Wonder to give myself more excuse/motivation to blog about my knitting.

Since I finished Spencer Day (sweater) and Que Sera Sera (sock yarn shawl) in December I've been working on a few small projects, hats, doggie sweaters, etc. About time to plan for the next big thing.

I bought this yarn in July 2008 when a bunch of knitting friends went on a yarn crawl in the north bay. Sadly the store Marin Fiber Arts is now out of business. In real life the yarn is a lot more purple than it shows in the picture. I have over 1500 yards here, plenty enough for a cute top, and I'm considering Parker Cardigan from IK Spring 2009. Swatching starts tonight!

Welcome to FAF! I'm excited to see what comes of all that blue alpaca.

Also excited to see someone from the Bay Area. My hubba is from San Francisco, so we go up there frequently. :-)

Hello Vivian! It's great to see you hanging out with us for Fiber Arts Friday. The blue alpaca yarn looks like it would make a beautiful sweater. You'll probably have some yarn left over and you could make a cute sweater for Rascal. Hope you have a great weekend.
