And then I got to knit. I am quite in love.
I am not sure which of these two photos I like best so you get both! the first was taken with a flash and the second without. Colours can sometimes change dramatically.
The first shows off the way the two strands of yarn look together most wonderfully, and this second is a bit more the true of the depth of the red, though the photo makes it lean toward orange. In life it is a real deep deep cherry red. It really does look just like the yarn the Brooklyn Tweed pattern uses.
I am really enjoying knitting this. What with one thing and another, I am really busy and the easy stockinette is a pleasure at the end of a day. And the dainty alpaca is ever a delight.
Good knitting. Good pattern. Crossing my fingers for a good result.
