Yarn Along

Who's been sitting on the edge of their seat waiting for the big reveal of what I started last week. 
Yes, I have started a new project and it is "not" a Honey Cowl.

It is a Guernsey Wrap
I started this 8 days ago and for me, I have had a very good knitting week.
The starfish is a souvenir from our recent trip to the New England area,
and it is strategically placed on the wrap to hide my cast on.
Have I told you lately that I can't cast on properly.
Pathetic, I know. 

Since I'm fessing up some truths,
I guess you will not be surprised to know that I have made two of these previously.
Yes,'s true.
What I love about this knit...
by just knitting and purling in specific combinations, you can achieve this lovely pattern. 

I am working with this "new to me" yarn.
Cashmere De Cottone
10% Cashmere, 90% Cotton
I have enjoyed working with this yarn. The only drawback, the yarn splits.
Otherwise, the color is beautiful and I love the feel of the yarn between my fingers.

  1. Gosto destes trabalhos.
    Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.

    1. translated: I like this work. A hug and continuation of a good week

  2. I have been sitting on the edge of my seat, nearly falling off with eagerness to see what pretty you are knitting now. This is so pretty. I love the combination of the different patterns. Such a lovely colour, Debbie. By the way, your casting on looks perfectly fine to me.

  3. I always look forward to all your knitting projects. I love the color of that yarn.

  4. it's beautiful. love the pattern.

  5. The lighter color shows off the stitch very well. You can really see the detail! If you can knit this, you can knit most anything. Xoxo Andrea @ This Knitted Life

  6. My cast-on look a bit ragged too. I don't know what a Guernsey wrap is.
    To me a Guernsey is a breed of cow or a Channel Island.
    I do love the pattern and the fact I wouldn't have to use circular needles.
    Tell me how I'd wear it or how a 20 year old grand daughter would wear it and maybe it will be a Christmas project. :-)

  7. So beautiful, Debbie. I love the pattern and the color, WOW! :)


  8. Very pretty!! I do love the pattern!!

  9. Love, love, LOVE it, Debbie! It's so pretty :) Have a fabulous day! Hugs!

  10. It's a lovely pattern and the colour of the yarn looks fabulous too ...

    All the best Jan

  11. I love the patterns in this and I bet with that combination it is nice and soft. You have gotten pretty far in 8 days that is terrific. I totally understand casting on, I am that way with both knitting and my chain for starting my crochet projects. Bummer that the yarn splits but it is very pretty!

  12. I love all of the wonderful stitches you have in that wrap. You are a fast knitter. I like your colors. I like that cotton yard you bought too. I really, really want to learn to make knitted wash cloths. I think I could handle that. :)
    Lovely Debbie.

  13. The different patterns in these things always amazes me. How they can be so different in different places of one thing.

  14. Debbie, it's beautiful!!
    I love the stitch pattern. I actually downloaded this pattern from Ravelry late last year because I will just have to knit and purl, and I actually think I can handle that!! :-)
    As for your cast-on. Oh, I DO understand. Same issue here. Mine is always too loose.
    Happy day to you, my friend! xo.

  15. I never did manage this skill! Yours is lovely to gaze upon, however!!!

  16. I really loved the color and the pattern of this one. You must promise to model it when it's completed. You really have become very talented in your knitting projects. You amaze me. Hugs~
