Every Way Wrap

lustra - burgundy

When I was in Philly last month, I bought 8 skeins of Berroco Lustra, a peruvian wool, tencel single ply worsted yarn. I originally bought it with some silver and black yarn and was going to use these two as accents (Tony's car's colors) but was kind of vague as to what I wanted to make with it. I then got my Fall 2009 Interweave Knits and absolutely fell in love with the Every Way Wrap

So yesterday, I hunted down my size 9 circs and cast on. the color of the yarn is gorgeous. More like the second picture than the first. I like the sheen that the Tencel gives the yarn. I've always liked single ply yarns for whatever reason. My only complaint with the yarn is it does pill a little as it is being knit and inside the ball two strands get stuck together and needs to be untangled. Hopefully there won't be a lot of pilling in the finished wrap.

  4. I've actually got 3 charted projects going - they aren't bad - but if you do the wrap - go online and print the errata - the key in the magazine is wrong.
