February 8th

My friend Kim was given a gorgeous gray cotton three button wrap at Christmas. I fell in love. I watched her open it and as soon as it was polite to do so, I picked it up and started counting rows. I knew I had to have one. Thankfully, Ravelry agreed and I found the pattern. With a bit of holiday money burning a hole in my pocket, I splurged on a cashmere blend yarn and some coconut shell buttons.

Three button wrap

This was particularly tricky to photograph by myself; it is supposed to look like this, but my version is considerably smaller. It is still warm, soft, pink and perfect! I am very pleased with how it turned out. And as crazy as it sounds, I may make myself another one in lime green. I want a bigger one too.

  5. Cashmere wrap… sounds heavenly! Do you have cool enough weather to wear something like that in AZ?

  6. i totally have one just like that! mine is black and white striped. it was a gma linda gift. i’ll have to show it to you.

  7. I nominated your blog for an award. Check it out in today’s post at my blog 🙂

  8. Ooooh I haven’t knit anything since Christmas but this makes me want to pull out the knitting needles!!!!!

  9. Ha, I have one of those! My Mom and I saw them in a gift shop at the Colorado Botanical Gardens last summer, and just like you, she is a knitter. We took dozens of pictures of them (I’m sure the salespeople thought we were very strange), and then she made one for me out of a gorgeous dark gray/black variegated yarn. It even has the coconut shell buttons! Next time you’re here, we can go show off our wraps. 🙂

  10. Very sassy. And you’ve inspired me (and all my golf league buddies) to start a knitting group. Basically they all knit and I’m begging them to teach me. I’ll keep you posted.

  11. I like your wrap. The linked photo from the store – well that one looks appropriate for modeling but not really wearing, moving, working etc. Your looks functional and very pretty.
