I ordered some DROPs alpaca wool and it arrived today!! Now I just need to finish the cardigan I'm working on and then I'm on my way to knitting a hat and some slippers from alpaca. I'm so over-excited!!

This is a piece from LaDeDa designs called Mares and Oats. I'm working on it as a present for my Mum. It is a song her and my Nan used to sing that drove me up the wall when I was a kid.

This is a tea-cosy (as you can see) that I knitted with some lovely yarn I bought from a shop in Great Missenden. I can't remember what the shop or the yarn are called though! The pattern is from
