It's a Wrap...and a Sock!

A while back, my friends at flickr got to see a peak inside my knitting bag. Thankfully, knitting has commenced once again!

After, my husband was "retired" I sorta lost my mojo for knitting and had a really difficult time finding motivation to choose a project and stick with it. One day, as I was cleaning my desk, I found a long lost gift certificate to Jimmy Bean's Wool and decided to spend it recklessly on something that was, by far, the easiest project that I have ever made. Just a long rectangle with a seed stitch border. Easy, yet I know I will use this all the time during the summer and at the beach in April. The cotton is heavy like a nice warm beach towel. No kid prints will be allowed!
This will be all mine...ahhhh...

I plan on showing the finished project next week!



And finally, another set of socks are in production.

Love the color on the wrap...sometimes the simplest of things gives us the most satisfaction.

I just made a Mac n' Me baby blanket out of the BS cotton. LOVE IT. That is some awesome stuff. That sock yarn looks cool, too!
