Hugs in Cotton

Yesterday, I started Part 2 of The Expanding Spontaneous Project.  Since there’s a limited window when the secret recipients will be available in person, I sort of have a deadline.  So, the Monkeys must go inside and rest for a while!  (They’re progressing nicely; one’s at the foot section and the other is at the gusset decrease.)

I was originally thinking of making a variation on the Crest of the Wave idea for the second wrap, perhaps doing the pattern along the length instead of across the width … but it’s more fun to try a new stitch pattern, isn’t it??  So, Wrap #2 uses Faggoting and Beehive Lace from Barbara Walker’s first “Treasury of Knitting Patterns”.    I deliberately chose a lace that wouldn’t be wavy, just to be different.  I think this wrap will be more delicate-looking when it’s finished:

The first wrap was a combination of “earthy” colors.  For this one, I was thinking of “leaves, sky, clouds”.  It took a half day of experimenting to decide on a stitch pattern, get gauge and make other design decisions.  The knitting itself should go pretty fast … well, as fast as knitting can go in high-humidity weather!
