a new pattern

Thursday, August 01, 2013

Hi.   I left for a vacation and took these photos before I left.
I've been wanting to let you know that I finished a knit.  Yippee! That in itself is a pretty exciting moment in my life right now.

It all happened when a friend showed me a wrap that she purchased and wondered if it would be something that I would be able to duplicate.  
I was totally up for the challenge, but must admit it really was not that difficult.  
As the piece is knit in one long rectangle.  Add some cables for detail.   
And a few chinese frog closures for interest and practicality.  Sew them on opposite sides and voila! You have yourself an asymmetrical wrap.

I'm casting on for another while here and writing down every step so that I can share with those that like it.

Hope your July days have been awesome!

  12. Gorgeous!! It's so fun to reverse engineer stuff like that sometimes (because the self-designed, hand made versions are always better!). The cables are awesome and you've chosen just the right yarn. Pretty closures, too!
