Linen Stitch Wrap Finished!

It's finally done and on display at the Knitting Garden in Westlake, Ohio. I will be teaching classes on this beautiful garment in January and March, 2006 (sign up now).
This looks woven instead of knitted. It is a simple slip stitch pattern, all knitting - no purling and, as an added bonus, no finishing! Done in the Blue Sky Alpaca Sport Weight it is luxuriously soft!
Using this yarn, the wrap blocked to about 54" in width. If you want to make it wider remember to buy more yarn because, at this width, it was cutting it close. A shawl pin will hold it together nicely.
Sally Melville's latest book, The Knitting Experience, Book 3 Color, is not just a book of good patterns but also contains a wealth of knitting knowledge with clear illustrations, well worth the investment. Posted by Picasa

Linen Stitch Wrap

This wrap is reversible and the picture in the book is showing this side but this is not the side you will see when you are knitting, so don't think you are doing something wrong - you're not. Posted by Picasa

Progress on the Linen Stitch Wrap

This is the side you will see in front of you as you are knitting. Posted by Picasa

Linen Stitch Wrap

Posted by Picasa I have been waiting 2 years for Sally Melville's new book, Color, to come out so that I could make the Linen Stitch Wrap and it is finally here! Sally taught my guild (Crooked River Knitters) a class in November of 2003 and brought the wrap to give us a preview of the book. I am using Blue Sky Alpaca and hope to cast on tonight...can't wait!
