Alpaca Baby Bouclé


Momma here, I know you haven’t heard much from me lately, but I’m back in the game. Many thanks to Aunt Geri and Kirstin for keeping our blog posts going.  I’m in a boot to stabilize my right foot because of a bone spur imbedded in my Achilles tendon. It’s not easy to get around, so I have time to knit, knit and knit some more.

I went on walk about in the craft room, and found some beautiful baby alpaca bouclé yarn. We’re always on the look out for this type of yarn because it’s extremely soft and lofty, but it’s incredibly hard to find. Kirstin found a few brown and white skeins in a Fort Collins yarn store while she was looking for roving.

I started with the brown and knit the baby bouclé with a pretty sky blue Flutterby yarn. I decided to knit the scarf very wide, and because it’s so wide you don’t have to tie it around your neck. Kirstin said it was like getting a big hug, and it’s so so soft.

Dad, my husband Gordon, modeled the white and brown striped scarf. The stripes were his idea. This little scarf reminds me of Harry Potter for some reason.  I know Gryffindor’s colors are red and yellow not brown and white, but I know Harry would look great in this scarf anyway.
