I believe this is actually the first thing I have knitted my adult self. (Oops, except for socks!) Is the color out of fashion already? I don't care, I'm wearing it. I really liked this pattern. Simple (= can knit while watching tv) but somewhat elegant.
The alpaca actually does itch my neck, but I figure I'm not going to be wearing it on bare skin.
