Happy Birthday to Me!

I told myself no more buying yarn until I worked through some of the projects I had planned, but I decided to break the rules and buy myself some birthday yarn.


I absolutely adore Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande, but it’s kind of pricey so I rarely buy it and I only make small things out of it. I have two cowls made from this yarn and I love them to death so I’m going to make myself a third one. It’s the best way to use this yarn in my opinion because it’s low yardage and practical. The cowls sit close to your neck so you get to feel how soft and cozy the yarn is every time you wear one.
