As promised, here are the current WIPs. I cast on both of these about 2 weeks ago, although I had to rip out the wrap and start again this past weekend because it was too small. I knew I needed to do it but I made my knitting group tell me too so that I didn't feel so bad!
Name: One Row Handspun Scarf by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted in Cognac (#158)
Needle Size: US 7 / 4.5 mm
Instead of 26 stitches, I cast on 30. The stitch pattern is easy to remember and makes this knit a great project to take to knit night and other places where I'm easily distracted.
The zigzag of the darker color through the scarf makes it more interesting, I think.
This will be a gift for Xmas. Although, I love the feel of this yarn and may have a hard time letting it go.
This next one is for me!
Name: Every Way Wrap by by Okmin Park in Interweave Knits, Fall 2009
Yarn: Cascade Yarns 220 Wool in Blue (#7816)
The cable chart was printed incorrectly. Here is the correct one. (You can also see a picture of the completed wrap from the magazine on this page. It is the picture on the right.)
I think this one is going to take a while to knit. I just started the 3rd pattern repeat out of 18 and I may need to go longer since I'm tall. Hopefully, I won't run out of yarn.
