White Tea (with a side of unexplainable drama)

Metro is now blocking (which is to say it's laying on a towel drying, but blocking sounds so much more technical; drying just sounds like laundry). Anyway, I am, right this moment, without a single cardigan on the needles. (Oh, the horror!) However, my stash being what it is, there are other cardis waiting in the wings, so fear not - I've already picked the next one to grace my needles (dramatic, relieved sigh here).

I will be using this yarn, Berroco's Ultra Alpaca, which is a 50/50 blend of alpaca and merino and comes in a whopping 215 yard hank at a reasonable price. I am using the Winter White color, which is a lovely, creamy ivory color. I expect to actually be able to see what I'm knitting in this, unlike the black yarn I used for Metro, which was mostly knit by feel. But what will I be knitting? Well, since you asked, I will be knitting the Tea Leaves Cardigan. I have been in love with this design since it came out about a year ago (here's a Rav link, if you'd prefer). This will be my White Tea Cardigan, which is, interestingly enough, also my perfume. Casting on will commence shortly!

Now that I have seen the White Tea sweater on Rev done in the lavendar/purple yarn I think the yoke design (which stands out more clearly)is lovely and will be really attractive knit with the white yarn.
