Believe it or not, up until now I have never paid for a pattern. Well... I've paid for a couple of books from destashes, but I've never found one specific pattern I loved and then paid for it because I wanted to knit it. Until Now.
Enter the Cedar Leaf Shawlette Pattern (rav link).
It's a small crescent moon shaped pattern with this gorgeous leaf trim. It'll wrap around my neck nicely! I've cast on 270 stitches with my new yarn!
As the label saying, the new yarn is called Andina Mix by a company called Filatura Di Crosa. It has 35% Alpaca, 50% Merino Wool and 15% Acrylic. I'm lovin' it! I hope that the colour changes in it don't bother me, because I forsee this one being one being a spring favourite!
I'll show you guys a picture of how mine is coming along soon because right now it just looks like a big garder stitch circle. lol
