We’ve started a bit of a tradition when the BF and I go to a yarn store together – he looks for yarn he likes so I can make him something. (So far, it’s been hats.) Really freaks the clerks out when they assume he’s looking for me, but he’s actually looking at yarn instead. But anyway, this was yarn he picked out in October, at Patternworks in Centre Harbor, NH. It’s another alpaca/wool blend, which may be becoming one of my favorite types of yarn. They’re so nice to work with – lovely hand.
Still love this pattern – this is the size large, rather than the medium I made the last time. I was seven grams short of using up a 100 g ball.
