More on the wrist warmers, side-effects of llama

The first one is finished!

Close up on the detail.

I'm really enjoying making these. So I decided to work on a pair for myself. I have a bunch of balls of alpaca from a frogged Beret of Doom sitting around, so I decided to use those.

The project is going well, and I finished one in a day. The problem is that when I started working with the alpaca, it didn't feel soft. Alpaca always feels soft!

I've been spoiled by baby llama. God help me. This fiber snobbery is going to put me in debt at some point...

Luckily I think the cure is to make something quick out of acrylic. Then alpaca will be soft again.
