I started this Beach Days wrap quite some time ago. I've knitted it in between other projects until finally, this was the only thing left on the needles, except for a couple of long term blankets, but just recently, for one reason or another, my knitting mojo disappeared. I'm pleased to say though that it's now finally finished.
I'd asked for Opinions Please back in November about whether I should knit the centre colour block panel of the pattern or not. I wasn't sure I liked the block of blue and gold waves right in the middle of the wrap and in the end I decided to omit it. I'm glad I did now.
One thing I wasn't very happy about was running out of the speckled yarn, which I knit the eyelet bands in, before I could finish on a gold wave. I quite like things to be symmetrical but there's a gold wave at one end of the wrap and a blue one at the other. Now it's finished I don't mind that, I don't think it looks odd at all.
I used two semi solid colourways from Jellybeans Yarns, Midnight and Golden (a one of a kind), and a speckled yarn from Norah George Yarns in a Harry Potter colourway named The Room of Requirement. They're all 75% superwash merino 25% nylon.
I wasn't sure the wrap was going to be as long as I'd like but I shouldn't have worried, it's blocked out really well and is a very nice size.
I'm very happy with the finish, I love the design, the colours and the drape of the wrap, I think it'll get plenty of use.
