Blue Skies Smiling at Me

I have a particular fondness for Blue Sky Alpacas because it was the first luxury yarn I ever purchased.

My first knitting project below took about 3 months of constant knitting and purling, and following the sage advise of my knitting mentor, “Don’t be afraid to rip it out.” I must have ripped out and started over twenty times and still the yarn was a beautiful as the day I bought it.

I have several different Blue Sky Alpacas yarns in my stash.  Sometimes I just take it out and look at it!
