  the wrap


Well, here it is in all its soft focus glory. Gee black is hard to photograph. When the flash was on, you could see straight through the fabric to my green tshirt! Not good to see two luminous boobs shining through! I was about to buy a belt to go around the thing today, when Mother suggested knitting one. So I did. I cast on a kabillion stitches and knit about ten rows, then cast off. Voila, a belt.

I have gone back to my little socky, which is quite pleasing. I went to Mother's today and she had taped Knitty Gritty for me, as she is an Austar subscriber and I am not. They were knitting in the continental style, which is not too difficult but looks really weird to me. Apparently it is quicker, once you get the hang. And I know when I do try my tension is much tighter, so it might be a good idea for me.

I am going to knit some 8ply socks for Purl, as she has nicked off with mine. I am going to make them green (I know, green . . . thanks Cindy I know you are doing something subliminal on your blog!) with little skulls on them or something. I am about to look for some charts. I know Suzi has some over on her blog.

I think I am going to attempt some lacy socks with my prize. MmmMmm I can't wait. I need to ensure that I finish Manly sometime very soon, SS is being patient but there are limits.

Oh yes, and I bought the Simply Knitting magazine too, which is at Mother's because I really should be working this evening, not blogging and knitting. Ah, what can ya do?

Ciao, adios, adieu! :)

Lovely wrap, I think a knitted belt is a much better idea.

Cindys green influence is creeping in everywhere!!
 
I am Green Darth Insidious!!! Your wrap looks great, and a knitted belt just tops it off!!! It is just right for the weather now too. Yes, I had trouble photographing the black Zhivago Wrappy thing . Now I have to sit here with the image of your "luminous boobs" while I eat my breakfast!!!! Are you at QMAP day?? Hope it is an OK DAY!!!
 
The wrap looks lovely and I also like the idea of a knitted belt.

It's always good to have someone to blame isn't it?

Katt's DH sometimes blames me for being a bad influence on Katt when she buys yarn.

Bad luck that you didn't make the last S'n'B get together.

That looks lovely! Well done!
 
Wrap looks great!

Green is getting around! I am knitting green at the moment and my youngest wants green socks too!

Green is a good colour! Look at the fact that there is an M&M in the "LIMElight" thats green! lol

The green is really getting around.

I am knitting a pair of socks with toes at the moment and they are knit from Hot Socks yarn with a green base colour.

The fingerless gloves are really easy to make.
