I finished this wrap the other night. Using some lovely yarn a friend gave me, I made her a little something. She’s been having a rough time lately, and needed a little picking up. Besides, she loved this yarn enough to pick it out in the first place.
It was a bit weird at first using this Lumpy Bumpy yarn was a bit odd. I’ve never knit – or crocheted – with anything this thick before. Having the yarn go from very thin to thick took a bit of getting used to. It was fun watching how the yarn worked up, too. Sometimes the thick bits alternated with the thin, sometimes they stacked. One way or the other, the yarn was very nice to work with.
I would work on this project when I was too tired to work on the shawl I was also working on. Since the yarn I was using was so textured in itself, I just swapped out the lovely stitch in this pattern to a simpler stockinette. Still, it didn’t take too long to knit almost 60 inches.
Once done, it got a slight blocking, big buttons sewn on and brought into the office to give away. My friend was so happy, she loved it! I love that she loved it!
