Inspired by the Big Top shawl in the Autumn PLY, I dug out some leftover handspun. I had the camel/silk leftover from the camel scarf and wanted to use up some fawn alpaca handspun as well as incorporate the lovely merino Souza "Pacific" colorway that I spun last summer and plied with white alpaca.
I began, as usual, with the best of intentions but as usual veered off the pattern and wandered around for a while.
I used a size 6 47" circs to knit most of the item then went to a longer circular 60" but size 7 circs. Worked just fine. I had enough of the merino/alpaca to single crochet several rounds.
