Notre Dame de Grace

I love the alpaca softness, how the collar and shoulder garter sections are designed but I hated the never ending Moss stitch! Here it is....the Dame which fits daughter YL snuggly and should keep her warm for the coming winter...

Pattern : Notre Dame De Grace by Veronik Avery, Interweave Knits Summer 2007
Yarn: Bendigo Wooleen Mills Alpaca, DK in Oceania
Amount: 2.5 x 436 yds
Needles: 4mm

Blankie is in progress now that the Mission Falls mill ends finally made it to my door after 9 weeks! But, I've decided to set the project aside and not try to finish it by September. I'm setting a new deadline, Christmas is addictive and there's just too much knitting to finish off for now...a Drops cable cardigan, 2 more gift scarves, socks, hat, mittens... I need more knitting time and extra pairs of hands!!

(BTW Mona, I've figured out the triangles for the sides - see the purple and grey?)
Here's a peep at YL's campus Afghan...slow...won't use 4ply in future!
