Now that I'm back in full knitting mode, I find that I am starting more projects than I am finishing - typical. So it is always a good feeling when one project finally comes off the needles.
My latest finished project is a beautiful woollen wrap. It features a striped cockleshell pattern that was most interesting to knit.
The pattern is based on Kate Davies's cowl pattern called BMC (Betty Mouat Cowl). I knitted mine flat rather than in the round in order to make a wrap rather than the cowl. I extended the stripes in the pattern to make the wrap wider.
In all I used 12 different colours of Rowan's wonderful Fine Tweed, a 100% wool 4 ply.
Full details of the project can be found over at Ravelry, here.
It's still cold and windy out there - so I'm glad I have my new wrap to keep me warm! If there are any positives to take from this awful weather it's that I have a wonderful excuse to knit more warm cardigans!!
