Dyeabolically Wrapped or I Talk About Knitting
I couple of years back I bought a significant amount of cotton warped yarn from my good friend at Dyeabolical Yarns (http://www.dyeabolicalyarns.com/). I bought over 900 yards of a blue/green colorway, that I called Peacock. I decided to knit the Elegant Scarf Wrap pattern from the Spring/Summer 2009 Knit Simple magazine. I even decided to put the project supplies and notions all together in a knitting bag and take it to work, making it my work project. On Ravelry I marked the start date as April 9, 2010. The project had a cast on of 350 stitches. I thought, and you should not be surprised by this, I would cast on 50 more stitches, so it would be just a little longer.
At first I was very diligent about knitting on this project during my lunch and breaks. Over time I got sick of the project and knit on it less faithfully. Somewhere last summer I stopped knitting on it all together. Before Christmas I decided to take it home and after all my seasonal knitting I would put my needles to the grindstone and get this baby done. Well the Elegant Scarf Wrap made out of cotton warp yarn is done, all 60 inches of it. A lovely summer wrap perfect for throwing over your shoulders on a breezy summer night, and as if on cue St. Louis has had temperature in the sixties. I love it when a plan comes together and I look FABULOUS!!!
