I got a wonderful gift recently! My common-law sister-in-law sent me 4 skeins of this beautiful black yarn and told me to make myself something, so I’ve started it! The yarn is wonderful to work with and is making a beautiful scarf. It’s called Mirasol Akapana and it is 65% Baby Llama, 25% Merino Wool, and 10% Donegal. I had to look up donegal and it appears to be a kind of tweed yarn. I also looked up the web site to find out more about the Mirasol project which supports Peruvian schools.
Here is a look at the knitting board I’m using for this scarf:
Here is the scarf at its current stage which is from one skein. I’m using a rib stitch:
