There was a raffle at Knit Fit, and I won a sweater’s worth of yarn! It’s Skacel’s Alpaca Seta which is an alpaca, silk, and nylon blend. It’s too drapey for any of the ideas I have in my sketch book, but I’ve already come up with a few new ideas.

I’m thinking of making a full length pullover that’s fitted through the bust and underbust and is loose through the waist and hips. In my head it would look best with 3/4 length sleeves, but I’m not sure if that will be practical because it’s going to be a very warm sweater, and I rarely want my lower arms exposed when it’s very cold out. The yarn is pretty busy looking so I think the sweater will probably be fairly plain. I might add a detail like a keyhole back to add some interest without fighting with the yarn. We’ll see what happens. I have to finish my Christmas knitting and my blue and red sweater before I dive into this.
