So excited!

Hi everyone! I just joined the KAL and I'm very excited. Of course, my copy of the magazine hasn't come in yet, and I have no yarn, but I hope to start it as soon as I can.

I'm not sure if I should use alpaca or not. I've never knit with it before so I have no idea how it knits up or feels. I was thinking about using Rowan's 4 ply soft, which is 100% merino. It's a close gauge and I like some of the colors. Has anyone ever used this yarn?


  • Try alpaca someday! It's easy to knit with, but warmer then wool. It's called the 'poor man's cashmere'. Frankly, fine baby alpaca IMO are just as good.
