FO - DONE - FINIS. I finished the Wrap last night and blocked the edgings this morning. I have never enjoyed knitting a project as much as this one. There are 21 separate blocks -- so you never get bored and the color changes of the K1C2 Paintbox are fabulous. We already have two classes and may add a third session. Can't wait to see what other color combos folks come up with. BTW, Gwen started hers, using Plymouth Boku and some N-word yarn. Here's what Gwen's wrap looks like:

Have you wondered whatever happened to Matt's Tattoos. Well, Miss Suzie dyed some yarn and it flew out the door. Here are some pix of what our customers have done with it. Lisa is making a Pi Shawl and Gwen made some very cool socks.

I got inspired by the colorways and did some dyeing using these bright colors -- a big departure for me.

Since I finished several projects in the last few week, I gave myself permission to start two more, another wrap from the latest Jo Sharp book and the scarf from Simply Shetland out of their newest yarn -- cashmere and lambswool. It is yummy to work with. We have a skein of each colorway at the shop -- these are going to be used for our "Little Bit of Lace" class, but it looks like we are going to have to order bags of each color. The latest book from Simply Shetland is already on reorder and many of the patterns use the new yarn.
