The day has finally come! I am out of school! I haven't yet adjusted to the idea that I am not supposed to be someplace doing something for someone is luxurious. I am lucky to have visitors this weekend, my son and his darling girlfriend.

She has exhibited the tiniest glimmer of interest in my knitting so, of course, the whole closet comes open and all the boxes and bags of stashed yarn comes out. a perfect opportunity to take some photos that I have been meaning to take for weeks!
Peruvian Alpaca
This is the alpaca that mom and dad brought home from Peru for me! It is exceptionally soft, and the colors are electric! They actually look great together so I am looking for the perfect project with two colors for this gorgeous yarn. Meanwhile I am still working on my summertime shawl which only seems like it is never ending because it is repetitive. Here is a detail of the stitch.

I have also been on Ravelry to further organize my stash and projects so I can enjoy the knitting time more this summer.
