Some time ago, I promised to knit a pair of armwarmers for my friend Stef. She asked for a charcoal gray yarn that would go with her office clothes, and I chose KnitPicks Andean Treasure, a 100% alpaca sportweight yarn - and of course, took the opportunity to create my own pattern while I was at it.
