Finished Wrap.

FINALLY! LOL! I finished the wrap I started last October for a friend for Christmas. It took me so long due to moving and then we had the heatwave from hell and there’s really no joy to be had in doing anything when your days are 40oC/114oF *every day* and the nights aren’t much cooler. There were also a lot of awful bush fires, which had the whole country worried, but finally there was a cool change which brought *lots* of rain. We went from one extreme to the other in 24 hours–hot and awful then pouring with rain and flooding. Talk about four seasons in one day! 

 

Anyway, I finished the wrap. To recap. I used the stitch work of the pattern Oz Twisted Beanie and that was the base for the stitch work for the wrap. I used the long straight Knifty Knitter loom and the yarn I worked with was a James C. Brett DK Marble in colourway #9. I’m very pleased with how it worked out. I used an entire ball for the fringe, so if you’re going to do a similar piece, keep that in mind. I used two strands of yarn, folded in half for each fringe. I can’t tell you how long they were, as I used my inkle loom as a way to measure out the yarn strands for the fringe, so just go with what you feel is right. 

 

And now, pictures! One finished wrap!

Here’s the blocking process, pinned to a towel on the breakfast bar. It worked!

So there we go. All finished, chalked up as done. Basically?

 

It’s a wrap. (I couldn’t resist!)

Aside

Only my chili plant seems to like this never ending heat. Ugh. It’s so revolting here, I can’t even. Behold how hot it’s going to be until next week:

For the farenheit peeps, let me convert those numbers for you:

35 C / 95 F
34 C / 93.2 F
38 C / 100.4 F

Sob.
