Opulent Knitting this Holiday Season

Opa's Royal Alpaca Scarf
Busy, busy, busy with lots of projects.  Just finished, and just in time, with Opa's scarf, a soft alpaca  ( Blue Sky's amazing Royal Alpaca,  an absolutely heavenly fiber that mimics Cashmere- well, I'd say it's so divine, those cashmere goats should be worried about their employment status).
The pattern is in the latest Salon newsletter.  Sign up for the newsletter so you knit one up real quick.
Qiviuk Basketweave Scarf
Finished and blocked tonight was another  fiber indulgence  scarf.  This  basket weave pattern was knit with a qiviuk blend - (combined with extrafine merino and mulberry silk so I didn't need to take out a loan to buy it).  but, you'd be hard pressed to find competition for this extraordinary yarn.   To say it is divine, is an understatement.

Topping off a season of sumptuous knitting was  an extravagant rabbit fur and cashmere cowl, sure to keep one lucky recipient extra warm this winter.
