Not your typical hellcat biker chic and
Li'l Deb would say "that's not a bad thing!"

Blue Sky smiling at me...

...nothing but Blue Sky do I see.
100% Baby Alpaca from Blue Sky Alpaca in Capri. I call it "My Aruba."

I modified Hermione Hearts Ron by Christy Aylesworth for daughter-who-doesn't-knit.  I eliminated the eyelet and shortened the rib.  The yarn is soft and the color is a beautiful turquoise blue.  She likes it. 

Nearly there....

Relaxed and floating Starfish (more like actual color).

Drying over FUN-O-RAMA Bucket

Ready to go...

Update:  Bummer!

Daughter-who-doesn't knit wore her new hat on the way home from work and reported "It's itchy! It itched all around my forehead and I had to take it off a few miles down the road."  Or something like that because as soon as I heard "It's itchy" I was thinking Oh. No. How. Very. Disappointing.  
I asked if I could have it and there was no reply.  LOL.   Maybe another soak or two will free some of the tiny fibers or minimize halo.  I'll be doing itch factor research and hope to find a solution.   Where can I buy a fine gauge cotton or silk knit skull cap?
 ...Happy Trails....
