I finished (almost) a wrap and hat for my grandmother. She says shawls are for old ladies so I have to call it a wrap...which it is so it's all good. I'm in love w/ this yarn Filatura Lanarota Alpaca Cloud. I bought a bag of ten for $30 at Smiley's Manhattan Sale. I love it so much I might actually take the subway out to Woodhaven just to pick up some more. I still need to find buttons and fix a mistake I made on the button hole. The hat was to big but it fits me well enough so I'll take it. I've already started another hat but smaller. I wasn't sure how to accomplish that since I do not have a set of size 8 needles plus the yarn says use size 9....newbie dilemma so I removed a few stitches in the pattern. Hope that works out. We'll see.
