Watch out, she's on a roll!

G'day all!

I seem to have batches of startitis eventually followed by finishitis.

Today I give you the Braided Wrap. (excuse the pics - camera didn't want to use the flash and they are a bit grainy and colour-wonky even after a bit of fiddling.)

This is an interesting wrap made from SWTC Therapi (Rav link). The yarn has bowdler (jade) in it, along with silk and wool. It knits up quite well, with occasional lumps of extra silk or weird fluff (the jade?).

The pattern, designed by my fellow Aussie Sarah Golder, is free with five balls of Therapi.

Pretty nifty, eh? As you can see, I am contemplating making me one - this one is for the LYS.

It took less than two weeks from start to finish, at the same time as I was knitting an almost completed tank for me. I've also started an opus in crochet cotton - I am knitting a curtain from it. A LARGE curtain. 15cm down. I only have another 1.4m to go. Ackles.

PS A1 - there is a cat that looks rather like Angles across the way from us.
