It's a Wrap!
Sorry, I couldn't resist the flimsy pun. My Wrap-Me-Shawl/Scarf is finally finished. I blogged about it way back on August 28. The finished piece really can double as a light shawl or a substantial scarf. I used Chris de Longpre's addendum for converting shawl into scarf. It ate yarn. I used about three and a half skeins of Noro Silk Garden sock yarn in two colorways and then a solid mocha sock yarn and a coffee sock yarn. I would guess about 1500 yards of fiber knit on #4 needles. I LOVED knitting this thing. Every block was an adventure. I really didn't want it to end.
I am already planning my next one. Wonder if I have enough handspun of the same weight to give that a try? Off to check my growing/groaning stash!
