This is my Cold Mountain (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer09/PATTcoldmountain.php), in Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud Lace, midnight heather

Mid-stole:


One end:


Modeled by my chair, to show how drapey-soft it is:


And over the teal Calvin Klein dress I made it for:


Took about 3 weeks.  The Alpaca cloud is sooooo soft and wonderful to knit with.  I'm doing a second one for bf's mom in knitpick's gloss, which I've worked with before, and the alpaca cloud makes gloss feel like knitting with a strip of burlap.  My only annoyance was that the join on the circular needle (knitpicks, size 3) kept snagging the yarn, and as the alpaca cloud is so thin, I was worried it might break--I actually didn't have this problem with my older, size 2 knitpicks circulars, so I'm not sure if it's a fluke, or a problem with newer needles.

Oh so nice.  Looks like a dream to wear and you executed it wonderfully, very precise.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.
