Firstly, thanks for the compliment, I'm glad that I did a post that has been inspiring for someone.
Secondly, I don't remember the yarn's full name offhand (you can check my blog link on the first post, I know I put it on there) but the color I remember was granite and it's a baby alpaca (soooo soft) from knitty.com. It was originally a pair of gauntlets, but the color just didn't work for them (I looked like I'd worn them for too many years, so I need something brighter). Anyway, after frogging, :crying: here is my new inspiration with a beautiful yarn. The black yarn is not so exciting...
