Inspiration and wips

This is the inspiration for my big-ass wrap. It's 100% cotton, while mine are 100% merino (because that's what I have on hand). I'm ready to look for buttons and beads to finish the two I've knit so far. After these two, I'm not going to knit a buttonhole; I'll find broaches or scarf pins or short knitting needles to close them. I've decided that my next one will be of Claudia's boucle in Ink. Ooooooh, elegant!

And these are my plain old vanilla socks made of Claudia's Buckeye merino fingering. I just love the deep dark red in this yarn.

Simple--figure your gauge, multiply times width wanted (in this case, about 18" for me, 16.5" for Bev), then just stockinette stitch for 61". If you want a buttonhole, 10" from the end, cast off 1.75" worth of stitches, the next row cast back on.

Mindless, I tell you!

Bev has been wearing hers unbuttoned most of the time. She says she doesn't want to take it off. I can't wait till I get one finished for her; she looks so good in everything she wears.
