Lacy wrap

I wanted to show a couple pictures of sock-in-progress, but the camera, freshly back from vacation (and filled with pictures of my adorable future niece – in two weeks, her mother marries my brother-in-law) needs to be recharged, and I didn’t take the time to focus it properly. Besides, it looks like the other one with colors in the opposite direction.

I meant for that to happen.

So. Here are pictures of the wrap.

Here’s the whole thing:

Wrap 1

Notice the pretty Inoxes and the lovely curled edge. This is a stockinette lace, with a garter stitch border. Since it does have a garter stitch border, I’m hoping it’ll block out.

Notice the stitch markers – they have to alternate colors or it would be wrong. Just wrong.

The one at the end is a locking stitchmarker so I can keep track of the rows. I knit the wrong rows twice and had to tink back each time. I want to avoid that in future. This has helped.

And here it is, close up.

Wrap Detail

See? All my little mistakes are practically invisible. Or not.

    What lace pattern are you using? A feather-and-fan?

    No, that would be easy and make sense for a first lace project.

    This is a combination of lace and cables. The raised portions are two stitch cables, done every other knit row alternately, and the center portions are a yo/dec pattern. This is stockinette *and* the pattern is purled as well as knit.

    It was billed as *easy*.

    I have to say, though – I’m not making so many misktakes anymore, it’s going to be gorgeous when it’s blocked and I no longer fear lace or cables, so it was a good choice.

    Blocking it will be… interesting.
