Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky, in sable and creme
Modifications: What is there to modify? It's 60 inches of garter with applied i-cord
This started out as a vest, but after using one skein I realized I would not have enough yarn, so decided rather abruptly that it should be a scarf/wrap/whatever instead. That meant I had to pick apart the cast-on in order to graph the two ends together. My garter grafting is not the best - I have yet to get the tension right - and marrying the two ends of the i-cord took several tries before I was satisfied. That is why it did not get completed last year.
Two comments, one good, one not so good: 1) The wrap is surprisingly warm for not covering much of one's body. 2) The Lamb's Pride sheds.
Speaking of warm, the red, red, red sweater has become my under-the-winter-coat sweater for walking. It's very warm. Too bad it does not look very good on me. And I never have reknit the collar - I think a V-neck would be an improvement.
And speaking of yarn, while looking for a sock pattern for the Zino, I discovered the yarn has generated many negative comments on Ravelry. I've never used it before, so we shall see if I agree with its listed shortcomings.
