I am still knitting along on my Rainbow Viajante.
I used up my first skein of yarn (238 grams-worth) and have started a second skein. I’m not sure how big I will make this, but I am thinking another 18 – 20″ in length. I’ve got tons of yarn, so can knit until I’m happy with it.
I’ve got a few new books to review, so I thought I’d do one today.
This is Classic Elite Shawls, Wraps & Scarves: 20 Ideas * 3 Ways, a Sixth & Spring book. It’s a book of wraps with a twist: each idea is worked in three different ways, so for the 20 ideas you get 60 patterns. Nice, huh?
The idea can be a color, a stitch pattern, a technique, a fiber type — you get the idea. Here’s a couple of pages from the Table of Contents:
This is the selection of patterns for the short row idea:
The patterns all use Classic Elite Yrns (the title gives that away) and they are all clearly written, some with charts, some without. There is nothing terribly complex here, but a lot of very pretty wraps for you money.
