Knitting



A friend and I were in Fabric Depot and found this wrap pattern. We decided to both knit it. The one front side has two slits in it to put the other side in and hold the wrap in place. It's a free Red Heart yarn pattern and was fun to knit.

I did learn to check things better. The pattern called for the solid yarn which has 330 meters to  ball. The variegated has 215 meters, so I ended up buying more. The cables show but not in the distance. The other thing I learned was that the model on the pattern was tall; I am short, so it comes down much lower on me. A friend suggested I belt it. I've started another but will try making it shorter. It is very comfortable on and warm.
