wisp

I finished my Wisp. It's a free pattern from Knitty 2007. I first saw this on Larissa's blog. She sent me the yarn and the buttons as a special gift. (Thanks again Larissa!) It was a fun knit. The pattern is easily memorized. It makes a great travel project. When you're done you have a versatile scarf, shawl accessory. The nice thing about Wisp is the amazing number of ways you can make use of it.

You can wear it as a stole:As a scarf:

As a cowl:or even a shawl:

The pattern even shows it being worn as a hood (you can weave a ribbon along the side) but it looked rather hilarious. I'm sure my wisp will get lots of wear. Here's the knitty gritty:

Pattern: Wisp
Needles: circulars Size 7
Yarn: Kathm
andu DK color 400 (used 2 balls)
Mods: I used a totally different yarn than the pattern called for. I also used a smaller size needle.
Finished length: 50 inches by 10 inches.

It looks great! You are a speed knitter. I did finish my baby blanket and delivered it yesterday. I forgot to take a picture. I got a temp job and start working next week but will only work 4 days/week so maybe we can craft again soon.

What a great piece that does so much. Throw over your head when the unexpected spring rain starts and you have NO umbrella. Great job Lisa!
