but, my other "no brainer" knitting project is on hold too. i had first cast on 100 stitches for my boucle wrap, and decided after about 4" of knitting that it was going to be too long. so, rip rip rip. now i have 80 sts., and after some math last night, determined that my finished wrap would only be 43" long. i'm not ready to rip now though, because it is boucle mohair. it ripped fine the first time, and will this next time, but i'm not in the mood for ripping right now.
the black thing ontop of the mohair wrappy wrap is a tuck/lace wrap i knitted for mom almost two years ago. see, i don't really enjoy blocking, so, it's been in a heap ever since. but, i am going to block it before my visit is over. it is a machine knit, and the short ends are finished with beads & crochet.
