The Pattern for Sheldon and Leonard is now available for sale in my Ravelry shop. Sheldon and Leonard is a sideways shawlette/scarf/wrap pattern that is written for both fingering weight and sport weight yarn.
Sheldon is the fingering weight version:
As shown here, it is worked with one 395-yard skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in the “Jade” colorway, using a U.S. size 3 needle.
Leonard is the sport weight version:
This was knit with one 360-yard skein of Madelinetosh Pashmina in the “Bark” colorway, using a U.S. size 5 needle.
This piece is worked sideways, end to end, and the simple lace edging is worked as you knit the body.
Both wraps measure 50″ unstretched across the top edge and 11.5″ deep. I did not block out the garter stitch because I like the way it molds to the wearer. It’s very stretchy — when worn, the piece stretches out well over 60″. You could knit a bigger wrap if you like. The pattern has directions for the exact number of rows/repeats for each version, but also has instructions for knitting according to the weight of your skein, so you can use up every bit of your yarn if you have a larger skein and want a bigger piece. You could also knit a dk or worsted weight version using the “knit by weight” instructions — you’d need to use a size 7 or 8 needle for heavier yarn, of course.

His odometer as of this morning:
I think it is a sign of maturity that I did not drive around the block until it hit 700 miles, don’t you?
Here is my current work in progress:
Yes, it is ruffled and yes it is Kauni. Fear me.
Lucy is not surprised. But she’s more interested in a paper ball.
