Thanks Lynda

Mr. Canada Post brought in a parcel from Lynda this morning with a finished project. Thank goodness someone is getting knitting finished.
Pattern: Fractal Cowl from Blue Sky Alpacas
A field of reverse stockinette stitch creates the perfect canvas for this unique cabled cowl. Inspired by the cutting-edge architecture of Australia, this chic scarf alternative is worked in the round (each one unique) to create sharp, geometric patterns and clear linear designs.
Yarn: 1 skein of Blue Sky Alpacas Extra
A luxe mix of baby alpaca and fine Merino wool, Extra comes in generously sized hanks and a rich color palette, making it ideal for one and two skein projects. Light and lofty with a springy twist, it’s a versatile Aran weight that lends itself beautifully to a variety of knitting tensions and needle sizes.
The cowl will be on display in the store next week. It's packed and heading to the Fleece Festival. I think we're ready. I guess I'll know tomorrow afternoon when we unpack and set up the booth. There might be some scrambling tomorrow night to make up more kits. I thought we were really prepared 2 weeks ago but now it feels like we aren't. It's too late to worry about it so I'm going to do the next best thing. Watch some TV and knit. :)
