Here's a great simple knit from the Loop-d-Loop book -- the braided neckpiece. I knit it up with Plymouth yarns Baby Alpaca Grande. It feels sooooooo good. I found it kind of hangs funny if I wear the braid at the front, like a regular scarf. But slung over the shoulder like this I think it looks kind of funky and glam! (Ha me glam!) And it was all whipped together in one evening -- a great quick knit if you are in need of some instant gratification!
