Summer Wrap

Have I told you about my latest knit??? I don't think so. Now how in the world did I overlook sharing such a delicious process with you!! Anyhow....here is the wrap, all finished, all yellow and all loved.
Yum. Yum! Such a wonderful shaw when knit in 100% cotton and it even gets better when knit with Blue Sky Cotton...life just doesn't get any sweeter. All six skeins of this fiber were purchased about 2 years ago on a visit to Yarn Paradise in Ashesville, NC. And this story gets even better when I tell you the purchase was made at 30% or 40% off the orginial price. I mean, how could I possibly turn the cheek on such a deal.

At the time of purchase I thought it would be a wonderful yarn for a baby blanket, but look what happened..............a wrap for me that is softer than any bathrobe and much more attractive! This simple project is the #074 Summer Wrap by Leslie Scanlon from Mac & Me. If you are familiar with Mac & Me, you know what fabulous designs they share with us. I have a baby blanket and ruffled scarf pattern by Mac & Me that I also look forward to knitting. I adore everything about this wrap. No disappointments to share with you on this one!
