Fit for a King!

Or at least Tattoo Boyfriend.

YPF Alpaca 012


4 hanks of medium gray alpaca yarn in a light worsted weight from Creations by Joyce.

YPF Alpaca 007


I picked this up at SAFF where one of my goals was a sweaters worth of yarn for Tattoo Boyfriend. And on the LAST day I found this. I think I may have dove in and rolled around in it right then.

So there is like 2400 yards (2 lbs of yarn!) there and she says that she keeps it in stock so to call her if I need more - there is no dye lot since it is a natural color.

Did I mention that this is the softest most luxurious yarn EVER??? I mean I have felt soft alpaca, but it puts that stuff to SHAME!

Suggestions on boy-friendly patterns is welcome as I haven't decided which sweater this will be and I need to hop on that.

Rozz is not pleased

I am a king and I get no yarn!

I have Son of Stitch 'n Bitch on order from Amazon. We'll have a look through that when it gets in.

Cobblestone from IK Fall 07? I seriously love that pattern. Very textural yet a simple design. *Insert snobby voice*

My hubby loves the plain sweaters. So his choice would be Leo from Knitty Fall 04.
