I'm in love with these. I don't ever want to make them again. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. They're made with Stockbridge by Webs which is close to Berroco Ultra Alpaca and I'll sometimes use them interchangeably since they're the same weight and blend, and sometimes I can't find the colors I want in Berroco, or I don't want a whole skein. Berroco only comes in 100g skeins, while Stockbridge is half that, so I don't have to buy as much if it's colors I probably won't use as much. It's a little pillier than the Berroco, and not quite as soft, but still a very nice yarn that I prefer over almost any 100% wool. Yup.... love these. Still hate embroidery.

It's been quite a while since I've posted anything. Shame on me! We've had a new baby (okay... he just turned one) we moved to a new city (all right... 7 months ago) and we've all been sick all winter. Those are okay excuses to not have posted anything, right? Okay I know. No excuse. I actually have done many projects, but I haven't been able to get pictures of all of them before I sent them off or gave them away. I'll do my best to catch up. We'll start with some hats that went to Canada a few weeks ago. These are all my own pattern except the Koala hat which was bought at the request of the mama who ordered the hats. I love love LOVE how soft the yarn is that I used for the Koala hat. The owls are made with my favorite Berroco Ultra Alpaca with trims in whatever, and the monster is Cestari. Enjoy! By the way, I LOVE the eyes on that little girlie owl. I'll definitely be using those again!
