I actually finished two sweaters this weekend, and I found a cache of wonderful yarn at the local thrift store. Both things made it a banner day on Saturday not to mention that I got to chat with my little grand daughter on Skype.
Here is the Chocolate Brown Alpaca Ursa that I finished for myself. This one had way too much seaming with a double button band, but I love the look of it.
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca
Color: Chocolate Brown, Color 6205

I stopped by my local Goodwill yesterday and was thrilled to find a huge amount of quality knitting yarn, Cascade 220, Galway Paint, and Encore DK( at least that is what I think it is), some in sweater quantities. The most expensive skein was $3.99 and much of it was $1.99. What a find and last night, I cast on with the peach Cascade 220 for this sweater:I can already tell that this is going to be a challenging pattern for me, but I love how it looks and it is a top-down knit, so no seaming!
Photos will have to follow for Umberta, the other sweater I knit for my daughter and also finished this weekend.
