its a wrap

w00t! i finally finished the second wrap. i think its even prettier than the first one, though i am quite pleased with them both. here is the newest one in action.


Pattern: Knit Picks Fishtail Lace Scarf (free download at knitpicks.com)
Yarn: Knit Picks Shadow in Campfire Heather (just a tiny bit more than three skeins)
Mods: Cast on 180 stitches and knit until approx. 50 inches long (i think)

hopefully the girls like them. i'm not sure if they are all the wrap type, but as they say; tough shit, its my wedding. i'm just trying to be thoughtful in case its chilly. but anyway, here is a close up of the stitch pattern, followed by a close up of the first wraps stitch pattern for comparison.


now i have to pick a pattern for the next wrap. i want to stick with rectangular for symmetry's sake so i've been perusing the internet for patterns (preferably free) that will work. i contemplated the Artic Diamonds Stole from IK Winter '06 but i'm just not sure it fits with the ones i've already done. something a little more organic and a little less geometric i'm thinking. though in all honesty, i shouldn't be thinking about this at all. i should be studying for the two finals tomorrow... nah.

Count me in for the PIF then!! I'd better put it up on my blog this week, so people don't think I'm a gift-scammer.
The wrap lace pattern is purty...
