The Royal Baby

While traveling through Colorado and Utah, I managed to knit up this cute little Blue Sky Alpaca baby set. I mean, with all the girls on the way, who could resist?!

Pattern: Blue Sky Alpaca Royal Baby Set
Yarn: Blue Sky Royal Alpaca in pale pink
Measurements: 0-3 month size
Started: October 7, 2006
Finished: October 24, 2006
Other Details: This was a super cute 1 skein project, but I had enough yarn leftover to knit it a bit tighter. Its knit really loosly on US5's but could have been written on US4's for a better overall look :)

I've been dyeing yarn here and there this week. I received a huge 120lb order of yarn last week that not only included sock yarn, but some laceweight as well. Behold, silk...

Silk... drool. I'd be interested in knowing more about the silk, as it looks lovely and I might have a project in mind for it!
