|Rose City Roller pattern - free on Ravelry|
We went camping at Montauk State Park in southern Missouri. It is a beautiful park and the Current River runs right through it and is known especially for trout fishing. Close by we found a shop called "Rootin Tootin Alpaca Yarns which sells alpaca and many other yarns plus fabric! Well you know I had to take time out from fishing and check it out. I resisted buying fabric, but did buy a couple skeins of yarn. Unfortunately they were very low on the alpaca hand dyed and the colors available were dark and drab, so I didn't get any of those. I bought a variegated Serenity which is superwash merino wool and bamboo in a color called "Purple Spice" It looks more reddish than purple to me, but since there was purple in the name, I had to buy it. lol She had lots of patterns, fabrics and notions.
