Weekend WIP: Two-Tone Top

Last fall, at the Kid ‘n’ Ewe Fiber show, I bought enough alpaca yarn to knit the two-tone top from Sally Melville’s book The Purl Stitch: Becoming Intuitive. I just finished the back (front and back are identical):

The dark yarn is natural black alpaca, and the light yarn is natural fawn tweed alpaca; both are from Bluebonnet Hills Alpaca Ranch in Navasota, TX.

Here’s a close-up of the knitted fabric:

I’m hoping to finish this sweater soon, so I can wear it during my upcoming travels in England.
