Getting Warmer...

Remember that thing about me not working this summer?  Well, I'm really not.  

But as much as I'm "not working", I don't seem to be able to "not knit".  I'm actually not sure why anyone would want to not knit.  After all, I still wait for my daughter after gymnastics, I still sit through many, many softball games, and I still have shows I enjoy "watching" (ok, it's actually listening) on tv.  So not knitting is not really an option.   

As long as I was knitting anyway, I thought I'd finish up this wrap I've been working on.  It's been about 90% finished for almost a month now, but the last trim part has taken me a while and a good bit of experimenting to get just right, but I'm happy to say that I'm now quite proud of the way the corners have come out on this wrap.  

Now that I've got the formula figured out, I need to finish my charts and re-knit the edges one more time.  After that, I'll be ready for some testers who love following lace charts!

Since I'm "not working", I have no idea if I'll be able to start testing before we leave for vacation in a couple weeks but I'll give it the old college try.

And my husband doesn't know this yet, but I have big plans to take my wrap to Toronto with us for some photographs on the beach.  Looks like I'll be "not working" on vacation, too.


PS: In case this design in on your radar and you want to be prepared with yarn when it comes out, you'll need about 675 yes of light fingering-weight yarn.


  1. Well, I guess it is a good thing that I have learned to read lace charts working on a new project. SCORE!

  2. This is so pretty Nicole!
