What's On My Needles!!!

When I say that, I feel like a knitter. A real knitter.
So are you ready to see my most challenging project to date.

The Guernsey Wrap

I took this class on April 25th, 
Leanne's finished wrap, is on the table, to the right.
It's always wonderful to see the finished project, before you start.
It gives you a great image of what you are creating,
and working toward.

 I brought little sandwiches, brownies and sweet tea,
as we "work" through lunch and we need a power source!

This is my wrap, as I left class...

 here it is yesterday... 

and now today,

 it has so many beautiful details.

I LOVE the pattern, the way it looks 
and I can't wait to wrap it around my shoulders!!
