Probably you remember the alpaca that I made a couple of weeks ago. A colleague was so enthusiastic about it that she asked me to make one for her, too, but in different colors. Of course I did. I brought it to her myself, mostly because she works in the hospital I worked until three months ago. I decided I wanted to work closer to home, but to be honest, I miss my old colleagues every day. A couple of times I was close to call my old hospital to ask if I could come back, but I'm still working at my job, because I think I must give it a chance. But now that there's a good reason to visit my old job and see my colleagues, I grab the chance.
Anyway, here's another alpaca:
For years I'm making a Mochila Bag every now and then, but a while ago I saw a book about fair isle crochet. It's the same technique that I use for the bags, but there were lots of other very nice projects in the book that you can make with this stitch. The most beautiful thing in the book is a large blanket, but knowing that I don't have the patience to ever finish a large project like that, I don't even think about making a start with it. Instead I chose to make a sack for one of my new plants.
