• Knitting with a Cloud


I have long been a big fan of the beautiful soft Blue Sky Alpacas Brushed Suri. It is almost like knitting with a cloud! I first fell in love with the stuff when I started lining mittens last year. The mittens look pretty on the outside but it’s always nice to hear the exclamations as people try them on and slip their hands into a super soft and warm lining. It’s almost always a nice surprise.


Well, just when I was starting to wonder what else I could do with this lovely stuff, BSA came out with a great new pattern: the Brushed Suri Tunic! Anina knit it up in what felt like 2 minutes (she’s a bit wild though, do not attempt) in the charming Sweet Potato colour.


The pattern is kind of sixties inspired and I just love the shape of it. It’s as soft as it looks to put on too. Just lovely. If orange isn’t your colour I recommend the bright pink. It’s so fun!

    Hey! Is it alright if I go a bit off topic? I am trying to read your website on my iPad but it doesn’t display properly, any suggestions? Cheers! Gaynell

  2. I Love love love the brush suri aswell! I made Blue Sky Alpacas Brushed Suri Wrap which was a fantastic pattern and of course the yarn -amazing! And as if that wasn’t enough, I am also knitting the Feather Sweater from Vogue Knitting Fall 2019 in the brushed suri and I think it is going to be a winner!
