This past weekend, I finished the Buttonwillow wrap. It only took me three tries, until the third one was the charm. I like this design for the unusual spine, and the edging, especially the bell shaped big one in the middle.
This wrap is so soft, if hairy. The yarn is a blend of 80% Alpaca 20% Silk. Lovely combination. I liked this yarn much better than what was used in the original design (The Fiber Company Road to China Light, in the colorway Peridot, which I have, and it was my first try).
Even though I really like this colorway, this shawl will go into the gift bin for now. I'd like to make myself one with handspun yarn.
While I was taking these photos, Denny stole a wooden board from the kitchen counter, and munched on it, when I found him like that in my studio.
