(In addition to working on my green Love Note sweater)
I am currently working up the Coffee Shop Wrap. If you recall, I received the whole kit for Christmas. The kit came with cotton yarn, but for my first one I am using Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn. Why? Because it is still winter and it is cold—and I have been routinely washing all my scarves and cowls and whatnot that I wear on a regular basis—on a regular basis.
I have the yarn for three of these wraps. The cotton yarn that came with the kit in the original colors is the first set of yarn. The wool-ease, in shades of off-white and blush. And the third set is the same cotton yarn as the original kit, but in completely different colors.
For this first time making the pattern, I am working the pattern exactly as written. I don’t see any reason to mess with it or anything. Except—I have no plans nor desire to include the tassels on the ends once I finish knitting the piece. I am just not a big tassel person.
As things are going, it is a simple knit. Right now, that is a lot of what I need: simple. I cannot wait to wear this first one. The pattern is well-written and clear. Worsted weight yarn on US 10 size knitting needles. It’s all good for me right now.
What is coming up once this project is finished?
And no, I still have not found all my interchangeable knitting needles…I still haven’t found my knitting needle bag. Argh!
