One of my friends went to Peru a few years back and brought me back two large balls of Alpaca yarn. One ball is white and the other is a dusty cream color. I packed them around through several moves and then finally decided to knit something with them. I chose the dusty cream color and a pattern from my stash. I have a Winter 2006 Interweave Knits magazine in which there's a pattern called Arctic Diamond Stole that fit the bill. I've been working on it for a few months now. I'm down to my last repeat of the pattern---I had to add an extra repeat because it didn't seem big enough for a shall. Soon I'll be blocking it and hopefully wearing it this winter.
