What's new Chez Loopy Alpaca

Have you guys seen Tracery? I finally got a knitting pattern out! This one is is Universal Yarn Summer Linen, a Dk weight linen/cotton blend/ I has a deep scoop neck, a slight a-line, short sleeves, and is knit in pieces bottom up to the yoke, where all are joined for a raglan shoulder. Will try to get a photo of it on an actual person when it isn't snowy out side - it seems sort of silly to have snow in the background of a pattern for spring/summer.LL had a couple of friends sleep over last Sunday night because there was no school Monday. Imagine my surprise (and delight) when I got up Monday morning and they were all crocheting. Photos cropped to hide kids' faces - and notice they all have the same electric orange mail polish on? They did that too!

This is M, she didn't get past the chain stitch, but had a really great time chaining.
This is A - she loved her scarf so much that she went to A C Moore and bought crochet hooks, pillaged my stash, and made another one before she went to bed on Monday night! She even wore this one to school, so I know she wasn't just humoring me with the crochet interest.
LL is on an amigurumi kick - this is her current favorite, Chiquito! He was made of leftover Cascade 220, and is from the book Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet


LL wants you all to know that she is officially a contract crocheter now, and is making some ami store models for our LYS. I told her she isn't official until she actually finishes something and delivers it. Silly mommy...

Busy swatching and trying to get organized. I don't think a weekend will be enough time...
