|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).

|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.
