Started in on another project for my Holiday 2008 knitting. I am using Misti Alpaca Chunky in color 410, which is a lovely dark brown.
This photo shows the color the best. It does actually resemble the color of soil, doesn't it?
I chose to do a two cable set, with garter stitch spacing and borders. And this is a C4F cable. The next photo shows the cable the best.
I only have two skeins of the Misti Alpaca, so if need be, I will add a little Elsebeth Lavold Silky Flamme to it. The brown is lighter, but it will go quite nicely.
A warning about the Misti Alpaca. Use really sharp needles, as the plies can snag when you are knitting. :)
