Branching Out - Finished!
Yarn: Knitpicks Andean Treasures, 100% Alpaca, Embers, 2 skeins
Needles: Susan Bates, circular US size 8
Pattern: Branching Out
Start: July 4
Finish: July 25
Comments: I had a number of false starts trying to follow the chart at first, but by the end of the first skein I had it memorized. The Knit Picks alpaca was a pleasure to work with, very soft and elegant feeling. A tip: the pattern is symmetrical, which is important to remember when trying to find a dropped stitch. By comparing the right side of the pattern to the left, it was much easier to see where I'd gone astray. I will definitely use this pattern again.
