This is End of Summer Suri Alpaca/Merino yarn. I am using it to knit Raha from Knitted Lace of Estonia by Nancy Bush.
This is Keltic Berroco yarn I am using to knit a hat with ear flaps. I love the marled look of this hat and I have to say that this yarn is very nice to knit with. It has an incredible hand and it does not split like a lot of yarns do. This hat is being knit with US 8 needles. Cheap bamboo needles from Amazon. If you need dpns and don't want to spend a lot of cash, hit Amazon and buy them. You get every single size you need in one lump sum. I think I only spent $19.99 for them last year. Pretty good deal.
