Wrap That Rocks!


Blue Moon is so much more than just Socks that Rock! To me, its all about their colors!! I LOVE them!! Here is a wrap I made in their Luna ribbon that I picked up at Stitches West last year. I LOVE IT!! Its been on my unfinished objects list FOREVER!! But, after finishing my Socks that Rock, I figured I should finish this...and just two nights later....voila!! The picture below reflects the color most accurately (more black than blue as it appears above). The colorway is Atomic. And the pattern is a my modified version of a Berroco pattern that I made out of their Zen yarn. Its essentially a four row drop stitch pattern...super easy that really shows off the gorgeous ribbon. Can't wait to take this wrap out for a night on the town! Oh, yeah! That's my life :)




Blue Moon Fiber Arts Luna, 100% Nylon, colorway: Atomic




And the reason why I have been so motivated to finish both my socks that rock and my wrap that rocks is so that I can start my..... SCARF THAT ROCKS!! hahaha!





The ingredients: STR Footzey-Foo and Nodding Violet, mediumweight






Its the Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts that can be seen here in STR. I'm kinda proud of myself for branching out and picking out my own colors because I really wanted to do Farmhouse and Watermelon Tourmaline (the colors seen here). I'm so glad I did. This combination is so "Springy!" I love it! Let's look closer!




Yes. I love Blue Moon. I admit it. Oh, and to make me even happier today, my final yarn purchase (from 15 days ago!) finally came in the mail today. And yes, it was from Blue Moon. Its been a good week! Oh, and Pashyknits posted. Seriously, can't beat that!! Happy Knitting!! xoxoxo Irishgirlieknits
