What are you most proud of? Using the yarn from alpacas raised nearby. I met the owners of Lavender Fields and their love for the animals is evident in talking to them. They create beautiful, hand dyed yarns that are a joy to use and create lovely, one-of-a-kind items. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Knitting in the round is relatively easy. Hats make wonderful fashion statements and gifs. People who receive a hand knit hat or scarf appreciate receiving a work of love created just for them.
