Slowly but surely my 2nd sweater is taking shape. I have to say I like the alpaca yarn from the first sweater better. This one uses hand painted merino wool and it just doesn't have the soft feel or the drape I prefer. It still has the neckband and sleeves to go and I am looking forward to another completion. Black Friday tempted me with another sweater yarn purchase, this one wool with silk, a bit more drapey. There are so many textures and colors out there to try.
