Not but a week ago, I talked about spinning up some raw black alpaca in this post ,
It is destined for Bariloche in Patagonia (the Andes Mountains).
It being a ski hat for my Argentine friend.
Well, here it is…
I really like the rib decreases I improvised, but the yarn is so dark and handspun ‘nubby’, one can barely see …
And meet Bica, the alpaca source from which Ale’s ski hat was made…

Shipped off to Argentina to be field-tested on the slopes,
and hopefully it will see the snow before it melts.
It will go well with these handspun alpaca gloves which I made for Alejandro last year !
(( hint, this won’t be the last you’ll see of the ski hat, Ale promised a photo ))
