a small project on the side...

In winter I bought 2 hanks of deliciously soft, super fine, dark charcoal 
2 ply baby alpaca...

 from the moment I spied it I've had 'ideas' of making myself 
a super soft, super fine, super light weight, lacy mini wrap

 In a couple of weeks time a dear dear friend is getting married 

I thought it would be nice to make myself a special something to wear...

(I couldn't find a pattern for what I could imagine - so I'm just going for it freeform!)

(I wonder if I'll get it finished in time?)

mmmmm the baby alpaca is soooooooooo lovely to snuggle against!

but even if I don't get my project finished in time - 
my girlie has been inpired and is discovering the joy of making things with bits of wool...

I love us sitting together - hook and wool in hand

it's a sweet special time
