Something "Red" or Grey
This Blue Sky Alpaca Yarn rocks! It goes to the top of my faves list. I was assuming it would shrink up like my swatch, but it didn't shrink very much at all. Which is unfortunate because the raglan in my size is just too long. I should of made the smallest, as it is kind of baggy (even with decreases) in the pitts. Grr. I have an extra inch or so. I just like things fitted. Oh, and my gauge was off, so it ended up kind of big overall, but that isn't a problem as it is meant to be worn over things.
Other than that, it is a good pattern, besides me messing up the short rows. The instructions didn't make sense to me, especially when hiding the wraps since I was wrapping the same stitch each time. Now, I've done short rows before, but never wrapped the same stitch, so it was um, weird. I think I just read it wrong.
