FO Friday.

This is my version of  the Shine Wrap by Janina Kallio. I started it in June with the intention of donating it to a fundraiser for my friend Jeff, who ran for state assembly. While mine is not as interesting as this one, I think it turned out pretty well. The amazing thing is that I finished it in  plenty of time for the fundraiser, but procrastination on the blocking phase meant that it was still slightly damp when I delivered it to the fundraiser in early October.

Yarn: Cascade Heritage Solids, the intriguingly named colorway  5604, and SweetGeorgia Yarns Tough Love sock, colorway Stillwater. I don’t know how much I used of each one; probably one skein or a bit more of the Cascade and about half a skein of the SweetGeorgia. Not much help, I know.
Pattern: Shine Wrap.
Needles: KnitPicks Options US#6.

Here it is in its blocking phase.

The woman who bought it is a knitter, so she appreciated it. She also had gray-white hair and it looked terrific on her. Score!

This is a great pattern. Easy-peasy, just k2tog, yo for the lacy sections and garter for the solids. It would be gorgeous with any number of yarns.

Note: I was appalled to see that I had not posted an FO since December 2015. Time to documents those knits!

    Janina Kallio does many pretty things with the basic combination of garter stitch and yo, k2tog. This looks great!
