FO Fun: Finished Alpaca Projects

Remember that beautiful skein of alpaca yarn that I showed off a few days go?  Here are the FO’s that I created from it.  It love these finished alpaca yarn projects!

First off, I knit I scarf.  I used a lacy rib stitch I got out of a book called The Essential Stitch Collection.  It’s a simple pattern that was easy to do while relaxing.

Here are few pictures of the project.  If you are interested, head on over to the project page on Ravelry, too.

When I finished the scarf, I noticed I I could probably get a hat out of what I had left.  So, I did.  Here is the Fishtail Hat!

The detail shot in the beginning of the post is actually from this hat.  I got the pattern out a 2008 page-a-day calendar with knitting patterns.  I got the collection at a creative reuse store.  Some of the patterns are a little dated, but most of them are pretty timeless, and I only recently have been referring to the collection for inspiration.  I sort of forgot about it, but rediscovered it when I was looking for something new to knit.

Again, if you are interested, here is the project page for this hat is available to see on Ravelry, as well.

So, that’s what I knit with my beautiful skein of alpaca yarn.  I quite pleased with the outcomes, and I am wearing them when I go outside today.
