FO #77

Have I mentioned that I'm in love with Alpaca Silk? I was sad to finish this, because it was such a dream to knit with...someone stop me from buying a trunkful of Alpaca Silk DK....

The boring stuff:
Preemie ensemble, sweater: based on this pattern, hat: no pattern
Knit in Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk (almost 3 skeins) on US8 needles
Pattern mods: I just used seed stitch instead of garter for the edgings...I like the look so much better. Seed stitch shows up so beautifully with this yarn.

Beautiful! What color is it? It looks off-white in the photo, but I wasn't sure.

I love the seed-stitch edgings!
