The Ocean Ripple Wrap

I don't know if I can bear to part with this wrap. I'm calling it The Ocean Ripple Wrap. I based it on a stitch pattern found in The Complete Encyclopedia of Stitchery, by Mildred Graves Ryan. The stitch is called Lace Wings, and is apparently found in Dutch stitch patterns. I then added a garter stitch border. I love the way the colour flows along the lace, giving the feel of water along pebbles at the edge of the shore. I picture this wrap over a coat, or even as an accent for a nice turtleneck and a pair of jeans. It will be very hard for me to part with it, as I love it.

Okay Kate, there is still a whole lot of time before Christmas - like a whole month and about 3 weeks - so whats with a bit more knitting?? Keep it and whip up something else( or mayber another one) - or in the alternative - tell your Mom - that this is a 1 month on 1 month off kid of gift(!) in other words - she gets it for January - you get it for Feb. and so on!! Just kidding - she will love it and you'll have to knit another for yourself... looks wonderful! See you in a couple of days.
