Shock and Awe

You think I am going to talk about the Tiger Woods incident? No, I'm talking about something far more shocking than that little ditty. I'm talking about someone knitting the Anthropologie Inspired Wrap. Then what is the awe you say. It is that two people have finished knitting the Wrap, and both came out fantastic.

I'm so excited, because when I pressed the publish button on that pattern, the little voice in my head started in. You know the little voice I'm talking about? The one that tells you to put down that piece of chocolate cake, or tells you that you probably shouldn't have another glass of wine. The little voice that basically takes the fun out of everything. Yes, that voice. It caused me to worry that the pattern would be difficult to understand, or that I should have had someone test knit it. Basically I worried that people would be disappointed, and if there is one thing I hate to do, it is disappoint.

Christianne from Drop Stitch Knitter made the Anthro Inspired Wrap with Cascade 220 Wool and left off the buttons. I love how it came out! The color is great for fall.

Rosemary in Time
knit the wrap with a tweed yarn, and also left off the buttons, and I adore how it came out too!

Thank you both so much. You really made my day, because I have the rare opportunity to tell the little voice - I. told. you. so.

And I thought you were going to talk about the war in Iraq.... ;)

That is AWEsome! What a neat feeling and I'm sure there will be many others too.

No resting on your laurels - LOL

By all means - ignore that voice because the pattern is wonderful, easy to understand and knit - and I'm still fighting off people who threaten to steal it at work!

You DEFINITELY need to tell that voice you told her so. It's been in my queue and is just waiting the calm of after-Xmas for me to knit it!

Aw, and I was hoping you really would talk about the Tiger Woods incident.

But perhaps someone could knit him some golf-club cozies or whatever those are called.

I didn't see this and now I'm off to add it to my queue. So cute! Something to look forward to in January.

How exciting is that!!! Lily and I are totally stunned by people casting on her hood pattern. Your wrap is sure to be a success!

Happy New Year Mary!
