Purple!

Here is the finished purple alpaca neckwarmer. This yarn is yummy, so soft. I'm not sure if I'll keep these buttons or try to find some that match better. It will depend on my customer's opinion of the finished product.

Crafting 365/270 Purple alpaca neck warmer

I also finished the second sleeve for my CPH tonight. Even thought I measured and followed the pattern, the second sleeve ends at a slightly different spot in the cable pattern than the first one did. I can't explain it, but am just hoping the couple of rows difference won't be notieable when it is sewn together. My next step is to block the pieces, then sew it at the shoulders so I can knit the hood. I pinned it together and tried it on and I think it is going to fit. I'm so glad because I was worried it was going to be too large. (Initially I thought it would be too small!)
