Peruvian Tweed

Alpaca yarn is a dream to knit with. So soft it slips smoothly through the fingers as my needles fly along.
Blending together different natural colors from the fluffy fiber animals this three-ply yarn called "Peruvian tweed" was selected by my sister for the sweater I was to knit her. Mind you I'd never knit a whole sweater before. Socks and baby things have been my deal.
The hood was the most difficult part for me -- figuring out what the instructions meant for me to do with binding off and casting on and shaping and joining. Bunny agreed to hood model so you can all see: I actually managed to get it looking like a real hooded sweater.

I am informed I will be making more of these.
