Project

Alpaca Baby Blankie

What are you most proud of? That I managed to get the weave to be tight without losing the loft of the alpaca, as well as that this will be a soft item for my baby girl to use to keep herself warm! I'm also glad I used 2 colors for the warp, otherwise it would just be incredibly boring. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't weave with cats around who love to play with dangly string bits.
