But tis gorgeous this early am. Clear skies and bright sun are the visible barometers of a pleasant morning, the kind of morning for a walk.
Still, though, tis also cool so I am spending early quiet time working on the Paravel Wrap from Tricksy Knitter. It has an asymmetric look, with long columns of wonderful nubby ribbing.

Edge border which also appears on the 'other edge.'
Then the chevron lace, an 8 row repeat.
Body of the wrap begins with columns of ribbing
and morphs into stockinette with nubby rectangles.
I'm using Heritage by Cascade, their wonderful washable sock yarn, with a bit of nylon. Needles are US#6. Details --
This combination is, with each row, confirming itself as the perfect Match Dot Com as described in a previous post.
- Love those wooden Brittany birch needles;
- Yarn is soft and the combo of US#6 and sock yarn has a wonderful drape;
- Colors are neutral without being boring; they have light and variety;
- The pattern is intricate and interesting but not painful to work; there are plenty of rest rows.
And now, (sshh) The Sun (sssh) is calling my name. Morning walk with prayers on the iPod. Definitely the right combination.
