Ravelympic Victory (and a special offer)
When accessing “ muscle memory” (I think I heard Dave Costas use that term) remember to access the correct memory and appropriate muscle. While cabling got more comfortable as I went along- I never let myself fall into a false sense of security. I knew I couldn’t risk having to do too much tinking. Just wasn't up to the level of trusting that muscle memory.
All in all I’m really pleased with the way the wrap turned out. Love the yarn even though it may – hate to use this word- shed. I wear black and I’ve noticed bits of the linen left behind- sigh….but I’m wearing the wrap anyway. It’s just the right thing for running around in a building that's not heated fully during the week. I think if I were going to knit it again I’d give it three smaller buttons. The button closure is genius though! It really does read vest or cardigan when you look at it on.
OK so here’s my offer – if you’d like to try this yarn – Cascade Yarn’s Rustic (79% wool, 21% linen) post a comment. On Friday I’ll put the names in David’s Olympic hat and draw the lucky winner. I’ll send you my left over Rustic- a full skein (balled)- Plus an extra PRIZE ball from my stash.
Off to jog my Victory Lap---Next up some Spring color for my beret sample…
