My first wrap is completed, and I’m a big fan of it.
I used the pattern Shawl that Jazz, and a silk and pima cotton blend yarn. The photos don’t do justice to the colors in the yarn, it is a combination of shades of greens, and browns with some splashes of red thrown it.
The wrap was going to be my backup, in case I didn’t get the Lily Cardigan finished in time for my godson’s baptism, but it looks really good with the dress. It might become the front runner even if the cardigan is finished (unless the cardigan turns out really, really good).
Here it is with my dress.
It looks pretty great, right? And, as I have arrived on the point of the cardigan where I find the sweater incredibly boring, I may never finish. It is a good thing to have the back up done.
It also occurs to me that I failed to post photos of my rpm socks, which turned out great. I think that is the yarn’s doing not the knitting. The colors are just beautiful, but again the photo doesn’t really capture it. The yarn is a combination of brown, pink, and purple.
I need to start on Sophie’s birthday knitting, but I’m patiently waiting for the pattern for the hoodie to arrive. It is taking a lot longer than seems reasonable. I don’t want to start another project until I can start on Sophie’s sweater. The wait will force me to work more on the cardigan, or a shell for Sophie’s turtle, or legwarmers for Petra…
