Yarn Along

Do you see what I see?

The needles are no longer attached to the wrap...
you read that right,
it's done, finished, completed...off the needles and I am thrilled with the finished piece.


Knitted & Purled stitches only, in just the right way, creates these beautiful patterns.


The Guernsey Wrap 
knitted with Undyed Baby Alpaca Yarn, 


it is a whopping 62 inches long.


My "live a life you love" book.


The book is signed by it's designer,
I am going to keep track of all my knitting projects in this book.


Hats...there are a lot more on page 2, 40 in total.

My needles have already starting spinning again,
I started a hat that I would like to finish before Christmas.
It can be done!

  14. I love this wrap. Thank you for putting it on Ravelry. How technical was it? Probably just keeping track of where you were. Was the pattern in symbols or words? Sorry if it seems I'm grilling you. I am contemplating making this shawl myself.

    1. hi sally, i have been knitting for 2.5 years and i found this pattern pretty easy to follow. it is not technical at all. knitting and purling only. the pattern was in words and if you can knit and purl, you can make this. i started this in early october and just finished it. it's long, and it takes a while but that's only because of the size. my email is stangs6@hotmail.com, if you have any other questions!! debbie

  17. Oh. My, this is just so lovely! I would love it if you could model it for us all. Of course, I think you said it was gift so maybe you can't. It looks like you did a fantastic job. I would say you are a talented knitter. I love that you have a book to keep track of what you do.
    Sending Christmas blessings and thought your way: hugs!
