The Wrap Group -- Mar/Apr #6

Hi, Wrappers!

How's your knitting going? I'm thrilled to have finished my second One Skein - A Stole from Noro Silk Garden Sock #269, a cream, gray, taupe mix. It's going to be the curtain for the sidelight by my front door! I used about 1 1/2 skeins and it's blocked out to about 12" by 78" to fit my window.

I added a very long fringe to my first stole, using up the rest of the second skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn that I made it from. I cut the fringes about 18" long and used about 25 fringes on each end. Can't wait to wear it!

Of course, I'll probably have to knit yet another one because I have my eye on several other fingering weight yarns. Nancy has this fabulous Opal hand painted sock yarn that's calling my name!

Did any issues come up during your knitting that you think would help others? Would love to hear your comments.

Wrap on!
