Paying it forward

Purple or pink. The purple was in my stash of finished projects (that seemed too lazy), the pink a ball of yarn that caught my eye today: it had been tucked away forgotten because there was just one ball left.

Thin, yes, not a lot of yardage, true, but still, especially in this mild climate, I thought I could make do with that–and it’s hard to go wrong with baby alpaca and silk.

I cast on as Michelle went off to her friend’s wedding and then made it up as I went along, hoping it would work.  Then I wrote what I did so I can do it again.

That doctor Tuesday was a peach and I want to make sure she knows that. You never know who could use a lift.

that is a pretty pattern. I know it will be loved and worn well.

I’m not sure the purple would have been too lazy, perhaps just not intentful enough? This one may have needed something knit with the specificity of thanks for the doctor’s care in it, not just your general spirit of gratitude.

I’m sure that your appreciation will come through given the loveliness of the result!

I’m pondering what color and WHAT Visionvet would like. She ooohed and ahhhhhed over my grey capelet yesterday…

I wish I could pet the hat before you give it away.

no, you can’t go wrong with baby alpaca and silk — lovely softness and warm even though very light!

That’s a lovely baby cap. I love the shade of pink – very delicate and soft.
