WIP: Rowan Earth Stripe Wrap
This Rowan Kidsilk Haze project from Issue 42 is my evening knitting when we watch DVDs -- it got me through last year's episodes of "24." It's great for my shoulder, too, as the larger needles don't seem to bother me so much.
But with all the double-stranded color changes, it's a slow project. Who knew stockinette could take so long? But there were great suggestions on Ravelry about how to keep the side edges from curling up, and suggestions for finishing up the sides and all the color changes at the end.
I have made some color changes to the pattern -- the colors are darkish when combined in two strands, and I wish I had made some of them even lighter! The wool is soft and warm, and will be lovely finished.
