Delivery complete

Well today we completed the trek to my friend T's house to meet the new addition. He is two weeks old now and is growing like a weed, so now that the present has been well received I can show you the completed project. He was presented with a 3 month old size, 3 colour stripe chocolate/fawn/cream alpaca cardy with the chocolate used as bands and collar as well. It is too big for him just yet, but he will grow into it!


I used one ball each of Eki Riva superbaby/supreme alpaca in 4 ply. There is at least half each of the two lighter colours remaining and less than half of the chocolate.


The Rosanna S'N'B girls can attest to the fact that some of the seams were pulled out a couple of times each to make sure that the stripes matched, the finished product was well worth it.

I really love the softness of the alpaca and will be using it again lots....

The cardi is so cute, and beautifully made. I love Eki Riva baby alpacky. Have never used it, but have lasted after in on many an occasion!
