We were thrilled when the editors of Alpacas Magazine chose to highlight our Alpaca Direct products and photo on this year's Cover of the Winter Alpaca Fashion apparel issue. Nearly all the photos on our website are taken on our alpaca ranch in Northern California. If you look closely, you'll often see some cute little alpacas grazing in the background. Thanks to Rayna our "Top Model" for sharing her awesome smile with the world, and thanks to Randy for his keen eye behind the lens. The journey from our original designs created in Peru to the cover of the magazine has truly been a team effort! You can pick up a copy of Alpacas magazine at any Barnes and Noble or at www.aoba.org. (Alpaca Owners Association).
Many of us knit garments and accessories, but not home decor pieces. Kelley is working on her Cable Channel Knit-Along project, which is a pillow cover, and it got me thinking about all of the cool projects you can knit to bring your love of fiber into your home. Get your knit decor on with six of my favorite patterns from Alpaca Direct!
Kelley shows you how to knit the Left Twist. This is a nice complementary stitch to regular cabling, plus you can add these twists without the extra work of using a cable needle. This stitch looks good as a border on the edge of regular cables.
