Aran Tweed Wrap is Finished

Our weather is pretty ordinary at the moment but that doesn't worry me at all, at least I can stay indoors and knit which is exactly what I did on Sunday and finished the wrap. I have it draped over my shoulders as I am writing this, it is so warm and snuggly. A big thanks to my SP for the wool and if anyone is interested I have written out the pattern and you can find it here. It is my own pattern so feel free to use it, if anyone makes their own version I would love to see a photo of it.

So now it is back to the squirrel jacket, oh and another pair of opal socks (can't help myself). I have the workings on paper for the Janis Joplin bag so when I find the right yarn I will be starting that. I was going to do my own pattern for that but then I found this thanks to Suzi so now I am going to use that idea which is the Poster Boy bag out of the Stitch 'n' Bitch Nation. I have also copied the Marilyn Monroe version as my sister adores anything Marilyn so that will be her birthday present this year, plus she is a very hard person to buy for so I figure that is something very different. That is about all for now I am off to do bookwork, (boring), I would much rather be knitting.
This is how much wool was left over

That's really gorgeous, and yes this is another little me too, but I couldn't let you go without telling you it's drop dead gorgeous. I love the swift your Dad made you, too! Hooray for Dads!

Sharon the wrap is truly gorgeous. I really love the colours and your knitting is beautiful. You are an inspiration. Thanks for putting up the Patons patterns too. I am leaving soon to take a small plane on a country visit. Hope those southerly winds are not blowing up
