The Big Reveal~

It is hard to believe it is time to begin the very first KAL from Alpaca With A Twist!
We have been working hard to iron out all the details and finally it's time to let you know what we
have in store for you.

Lovely in Lace, from our pattern collection created by Christina Wall  is lovely using our best selling yarn.  Baby Twist is  a DK weight, 100% Baby Alpaca fiber.  There are currently 49 colors to choose from. 

The pattern was orginally written for Temptation, a worsted weight silk and alpaca blend.  It is a loose fitting, A-line cardigan featuring a lace and cable edging.  It is knitted from the top down (no seaming!) and has a 3/4 inch sleeve. 

Several shop owners have requested the pattern be adapted using Baby Twist, so we got to work to see how that might go.   The body of the sweater is knitted using garter stitch, and  since I don't need any more bulk around my mid-section,  I decided to knit some swatches to see what I wanted my sweater to look like.  I wanted a loose and drapey piece and I am more than pleased with my result.

So it begins...If you would like to sign up send an email to and I will send you all the information you need.  There is no cost to join and your pattern will be sent to you at no charge. 
Online help will be available throughout the KAL.

I enjoyed knitting this sweater.  The lace and cable edge kept me interested enough not to get bored, but with the garter stitch body it became my "mindless knitting" project.
So consider this our invitation to you and contact me if you want to KAL.
Happy Knitting and Happy Fall!
