There was a girl and her big ass striped wrap….hahahahahahahaa!! Guys I finished it…it is currently blocking but I did it baby! Can I tell you guys how many times I have looked at a wrap like this and instantly told myself: You can’t do that! and honestly I have no idea why. I mean I can knit and I can purl..and you know what I have done them together in the past…so clueless am I.

I think it’s because knitting just looks so polished and professional that I would look at these projects on Ravelry and talk myself out of it. Well honey, THAT foolishness is ancient history..starting now!! Because I finished my wrap, I finished my wrap!! (you have to sing that part) LOL!

The pattern as I have mentioned in previous post is free and it comes from the Spring Forward collection by Plucky Knitter. This pattern is called Spring Fever by Amy Miller and it’s simply stockinette stitch but the affect of the color changes was like pure adrenaline in my veins. The closer I got to the finish line the harder it got for me to put it down.

I mean I would be on conference calls at work, all but frozen if it wasn’t for my wrap. Yup I was wearing it and knitting it at the same damn time

I kicked off my holiday weekend at a cookout Friday night and yup you guessed it..I was knitting. I mean how could I not, it was chilly out, so it kept me warm…AND then the home I was in happened to be the perfect place to snap a pic. hahahahahahaahahaahahahaaaa! Yup I sure did, my shawl/wrap/big ass scarf thingy made that chair look good!!

Every one keeps saying I knit fast, HA this thing took me 19 days to finish O-o! For me that is a lifetime. Remember I am team chunky, get er done in a day or two type chic, which is another reason I ran away from these type of projects. The needles are small and the yarn is small and it’s 480 rows of Stockinette, back n forth over 135 stitches! Ain’t nobody got time for that, right? WRONG! I am so very happy that I invested the time and in the yarn to make this big ass scarf. LOL! I have to find a name for her…because this is Bae right here.(that’s what the young kids call those they love, I trying to be cool) hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!  I promise she will be worn all year round. It’s so very soft and the colors, OMGawd the colors!! The yarn as noted previously is from Nice & Knit and it is 100% of the softest merino wool..YUP I am in love!

I can’t thank Karen, the owner of Do Ewe Knit? enough for introducing me to this yarn and for selecting colors she knew I would love. This was us posing after the colors were selected. This is the “damn we bad”face! hahahaahahahahaaaa
