Peer Pressure

Allen was teasing me about giving into peer pressure because not too long after coming back from our church's women's retreat I pulled out my knitting needles and started working up some of my stash yarn into a wrap. It's fun though, and using stash yarn means I get a thrifty wrap in the bargain. Speaking of thrifty, I found this oh so cute wrap pattern on Ravelry. It's $7.99 for one pattern, but I really love it's simplicity. It's this one pictured. I'll probably end up buying the pattern (even though I rarely spend that much on a single pattern of any kind) just so I won't have to try and jury rig it. The yarn though in another matter. 120 dollars the kit costs. As Allen remarked "and that's for something you have to assemble." I used to think of knitting as thrifty. Apparently that's not always the case. Apparently. At any rate it's nice to pick up my needles again.

I'm not sure if this is kosher information to share, but I was looking for a better description of this pattern after seeing it here, and I think I found the directions for free on someone's blog.

Anyway, I thought you might like to save the 7.99.

By the way, I found your blog from the sensibility site a while ago - I'm not just a random weirdo (I promise!)

Peace,
