It seems I can't crochet fast enough to get rid of the backlog of yarn spilling out of the cupboard. A quick granny shawl will usually take care of a few skeins. I used this yarn, bought from a woman in the next town, who owns a few Alpacas.
There were four cream colored skeins, two from one animal and two from another. I alternated the yarn every five rows, so there is a slight band of color variation if you look close.
My daughter was modeling the shawl and her new bun maker, which she says works fantastic!
Meanwhile, this came in the mail......
because I have a hankering to make the Haiku shawl next. I don't know what's up with the shawl thing lately. It's the middle of summer for cryin' out loud. Too hot for clothes, let alone wool or alpaca. We better have a cold winter so I can get my granny on!
I used up four skeins of yarn, and bought two. I'd say that was progress.
