We Are All Wrapping Up! In the almost four years that Woolbearers has been opened, I don't think I have seen so much interest in a project as our customers are showing in the Wrap Me Up shawl by Knitting at Knoon. All I can say is, WOW! About 20 knitters are knitting or preparing to knit the shawl. So far, Paint Box from Knit One, Crochet Too seems to be the favorite yarn, although some gals are using Boku from Plymouth. Both yarns have lovely, fairly gradual gradations of color. The pattern also shows it in Wooly Stripes, available at Woolbearers. I think because Myra did the beautiful example we have in the store of Paint Box, everyone who sees it wants it to look just like her's. Sandy came in today to show us her first square and begin the second. The 2nd picture shows the twenty cast on stitches and the 21 picked up along the edge.
