i just finished anais from norah gaughan vol. 1 , the berroco booklet available here: http://www.berroco.com/ng1/ng1_photoview_pv.html

the pattern was easy to knit, and i love the finished item. unfortunately i discovered i was allergic to alpaca while knitting it, so i'll never get to wear it. i'm planning on making this one again, next time in 100% wool.





i used the recommended yarn, berroco ultra alpaca light and it took just under 4 skeins to make the 34" size.

That's gorgeous - I love the color and the star design. That sucks about the alpaca yarn though. Is alpaca yarn itchy?

Norah Gaughan is a goddess.  Shocked I do want that book, I do, but Berroco doesn't ship to the UK.  Cry

That top is fab. Fab!

Mochaxlight, alpaca can be itchy, especially if it's not the 'baby alpaca'

Wow I love that neckline, it's beautiful! That's a real shame about the allergy after you put all the work into it, you should definately make a wool version though!

Ah okay. That's what my boyfriend said (he's Peruvian.) That's a good thing to know, thanks!

What a cool detail and it turned out great! Its kinda wierd about the allergy since most people who are allergic to wool aren't to alpaca so I assumed it was hypoallergetic.

So gorgeous!  Hopefully you can gift it to a similar-sized non-allergic friend or family member. I need that booklet badly.  Smiley
