A "Noble" Knit

This is one of the knitting projects I'm currently working on. This is "A Noble Cowl" by Emily Kausalik. It is an easy knit and I love the pattern. The yarn I'm using is Shibui Baby Alpaca DK - it is so soft! I'm making this one for myself and one for my mother in blue. I love the subtle variations of color in this yarn. It is one of the softest yarns I have ever touched and is an absolute joy to knit with. I love me some alpaca!

I am also knitting Christmas gifts this year, but I can't share those with you right now because a few of the intended recipients read my blog. I'm really liking how those are turning out and I have almost two finished already. It will sure be nice having them done in plenty of time.

Are any of you making your Christmas gifts this year? If so, what are you making?

What a beautiful pattern this is. It looks very complicated, but you say it isn't. You must be very good at this.
I'm not sure that I will get to making gifts this year, but I hope to make some Christmas cards if I have time.

This is a beauty. Does the Alpaca make you itch if you are allergic to wool? I love all things wool but cannot wear it, Cotton is wonderful but just does not have that same look.
