Reception Wrap

I realized that I never did show off the wrap that I made during the whirlwind of a trip that was going to my sister's wedding. So, allow me to introduce the Reception wrap.

Forgive the fact that I'm not modeling the wrap for you in this picture. This was taken on Saturday while Owen and I had our own little WW KIP day at the park down the street from our house. Since he had no intentions of wearing this so I could snap a picture of it, I found some daffodils that were more than happy to help me out.

This is the beautiful yarn that I used. Were I a better blogger I would have kept the tags for future blogging reference, but I threw them away while winding the yarn. But I can tell you that it was 40% cotton 30% wool and 30% silk and was a light dk weight. The woman who spun the yarn and dyed it lives just outside of Springfield and does all of her dyeing in an old bathtub that was in the barn. I love that!!!

I love it when I look at yarn or a finished project and specific memories come to mind. Like the socks that are at my desk at work. The yarn for the socks I actually saw on Lana's blog and she was making a Clapotis from it. Now whenever I'm knitting at my desk between phone calls, I think of Lana!

What yarn memories are your favorite?

I bought a hank of blue wool in Ireland. I just gave it away to a male knitting friend before my move, but I made a hat for Neal with it. Everytime I think about that yarn, I think about my trip to Ireland!

Oh, that is such a nice thing to say! I only wish my poor languishing Clapotis was finished and we could model them together:D Just too much going on to finish her just yet. Your wrap is just lovely and looks soooo sooooft! Nothing like x-treem knitting to get the job done, eh:)
