Ever have so much fun swatching that you just can't stop?
This week I was playing with Techno, a fascinating new concoction from Blue Sky Alpacas. It contains delicate baby alpaca that is literally blown into a silk mesh, then stretched and rubbed to appear very much like a singles.
Even after I finished my review of Techno, I couldn't put down the yarn. Stitches inspired other stitches, which soon became tiny cables and simple ribbing, and before I knew it, my Nestle Cowl was born. You can find the pattern on Ravelry or buy it here.
