I chose Larch Cardigan by Amy Christoffers for my next project. I am so in love with this sweater.
The pattern calls for Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light. I hardly ever use the yarn that the pattern calls for. 99% of the time, I make a substitution based on what other people have used for their project or I check the weight of the called for yarn and go from there. Since I order most of my yarn on-line instead of my local yarn shop, I don't shop by feel much. However, I did make a stop at my LYS last week to feel yarn for this project and I loved the Ultra Alpaca Light. Being me, I like a good deal, so I went home and did some price shopping. I had a credit with Jimmy Beans Wool and a coupon for free shipping, which made it much cheaper then I could get at my LYS. It was cheaper to begin with but with shipping it would have been about the same. So I ordered 11 skeins in Candied Yam colorway.
It's so orange-y and tasty looking! I can't wait for it to arrive. I'm so hoping that it gets here before I finish Aidez. Or maybe not. If it doesn't arrive I can head back to my LYS and pick up something for a small project to work on in the mean time! Now I must go plan for that possibility! Yay!
