Oh My! It is finished and I confess … I finished this long ago ~ A while back I was raving about how absolutely magic this yarn felt.
It truly was a continually wonderful sensation to knit with this yarn.
The big surprise was that this finished wrap totally has that same magic feel as when I was knitting it!
For some reason, I imagined that special feel would fade but it did not… and as I think about it, why would it? I guess I thought that the energy would dissipate or something.
It’s there as strong as ever.
It is kind of hard to explain
It is just one of those amazing wraps
that warms and comforts and supports at the deepest level
and lucky me, I have more yarn from Wild Rose Farm
Imagine knitting your favourite comfort food. This is what it’s like to knit with wool. From Willapa’s and RedBird’s wool ~ honey ~ butter ~ long summer evenings ~ like knitting poetry ~ telling these 2 sheep’s stories.
I have discovered.
The most amazing yarn.
From Wild Rose Farm on Whidbey Island Washington
There is something so magical about this yarn I cannot even put in words.
I am making s wrap and and when I cast on the first time I over shot about 2’ extra yarn…. so I re- cast on so as not to waste an inch of this precious substance.
I am ready to begin … come with me
and I love it

It was a fun knit with the perfect amount of brain power required to get me going in the early mornings (with my coffee of course). I’d much rather challenge my mind with a knitting pattern and finger dance than tap away at a brain exercise iphone app! Just as I would rather go for a hearty walk up and down hills than work out on an exercise bike.
It’s long enough to be an elegant wrap
and long enough to double up to express various choices of colour placements

as promised … The French Braid solution to all those loose ends
and I had a Really bad case of Loose Ends!
First I had to tidy them up, then I cut them to around 3″
Then I placed each one on it’s proper side. My thinking here was that it would be too bulky to have one big long braid traveling down the one side, so I decided to make 2 french braids on each side of the seem.
(it kind of reminded me of Alpha’s parted hair in Spanky and our Gang)
It turned out a bit wabi-sabi but that is fine with me
It’s my style ~ live and let live ~ and leave perfection to the machines
(not that I don’t strive do make thing well)
These braids lay pretty flat on the inside and I don’t feel any bulge or bulk when I am wearing it
I finally mustered the courage to block it and it is drying now, It looks like it will be fine.
I can’t wait to wear my Lidiya dress Pattern on Ravelry inside out
