"Paris Loop" in Plymouth Yarns Baby Alpaca
"Paris Loop" pattern...Plymouth Yarn's Baby Alpaca Grande Tweed. it's what i imagine clouds are made of...fluffy light and softttttttttt.
it's not quite finished because after 3 skeins of the Baby Alpaca i ran out! if i had to do it over, i would cast on a few less stitches because it turns out to be pretty big, or possibly instead of knitting for 7" on the two middle sections would only stitch 5"... it's only short by 2.5 " unfortunately. i will wait to buy some more Baby Alpaca to finish it, i wouldn't want to hack it up at this point and this yarn feels luxurious and warm on.
i am still planning on the winter coat project and starting on 2 winter coats for people who have asked. i enjoy the hand-stitching that goes along with tailoring jackets and coats. and i have a serger to make quicker work of the project.
i love vintage style wool coats in fun colors and funky plaids...i would like to make felt patch silhouettes of bunnies and cats and deer and other cute woodland creatures to add some fun to the coats...and possibly knit collar and cuffs in fun yarns.
