It’s a Wrap

Just a quickie today . . .

First of all, the winner of a copy of A Head For Trouble: What To Knit While Catching Crooks, Chasing Clues, and Solving Murders (20 Hats and Adornments Inspired by Lady Detectives of the Roaring Twenties) by Julie Turjoman is Theresa, who has been notified via email. Thansk to everyone who left a comment.

Next, my Ashburn wrap is done!

Just a couple of quick pics.

I do need to take a photo of it spread out flat, but a certain little furry somone is too interested in the process right now . . .

Let’s Wrap

I am continuing to work on my Ashburn Wrap:

The middle section consists of a pretty texture stitch. While it looks good, it slows down the knitting progress!

At this point I have only 6 more rows of this section. After that, it is back to mostly garter stitch. I’m hoping to finish this before next weekend. We’ll see.

I have been making a lot of these types of wraps. I’ve discovered they are the most useful knits in my wardrobe, particularly at this time of year.

It is quite chilly in the morning, and I go into work with my hair wet, clipped up in a bun at the nape of the neck. I find as long as I keep my neck warm, I am perfectly comfortable outdoors. I did this all last winter.

Then in the afternoon, the wrap goes in my tote bag because my hair is dry and the weather has warmed up a lot. It’s fun to have a lot of cowls and wraps from which to choose!
