I also decided to do some yarn shopping this weekend. I headed over to Close Knit and purchased a bunch of yarn, some gorgeous Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Turquoise Mix and Oceanic Mix. I found this striped sweater pattern, Rayures, that was designed by Norah Gaughan and decided it was going to be my next project. I love the micro stripes on the back and the big cowl neck. It looks so cozy. I just cast on for the back and will work on it in between sewing projects.
