Yarn Along it's a day of the week to share what you are knitting and reading created by Ginny, you can add your post here every Wed. or to the flickr group any day.

Calcetinitos de alpaca

This week I was active on knitting but not in the reading front after have finished Freedom, which I loved, but still can't tell exactly why.

Mittens

I made a pair of sock and mittens with an Alpaca skein I have had for about 3 years, but I don't have the label any more, so I  don't know how much alpaca is on it and if there is any other fiber, but the textures is great and I love the color too. And is so cute to make little things, I hope to post the pattern, which is my own, some day soon.

I had also some old yarn my mom's gave me, it's clearly acrylic, but still, my son needed some sleepers and I already had the soles from 2 years ago, I'm lucky they still fit him, and have a little space to grow into, he loved it, now I just need to make the pair. He loved them, and I feel so good to be able to do something for him among all the work.

Aw, cute slippers :)

I love the look of the alpaca too - I need to make some alpaca socks I think!

Ooh those slippers look so cosy. I have slipper inserts here, and an Aztec inspired pattern, and a big girl requesting, but still not casting on!
Might be inspired by you though.

How did you attach the soles to the knitting? Sewing or gluing?
