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.

My KnitPicks add-on needles really saved the day when I was knitting the garter stitch on the long edge.  Here it is in full length.  Wish it were a bit straighter but won't matter when it's on.

Added this last block of wager welt pattern  per Chris's suggestion for a scarf. Then added my own touch of a random bobble band.  I loved doing the picot edge.

 The multi-directional piece in the upper right top is knitted separately and then attached with the 3-needle bind off.  Best to do this with a needle several sizes larger to keep the flexibility in the scarf.

 Having the ruffle running through vertically adds such a whimsical touch.
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!
