Weekend Wrap April 16, 2012 – Posted in: Mondays with Mona

Well, almost. I’m not quite finished yet, but I do think it is a neat little project with lots of impact. Knit on BIG needles, with not so big yarn.

12 mm needles, to be exact. The yarn is “Origami” from Berroco, ever since I laid my eyes on this particular colourway I wanted to knit something, I just waited for the right project. On a whim I cast on for the “Weekend Wrap” by cocoknits and this fits the bill. Totally. You might have stumbled across this designer last year, when “Gretel” made an appearance in brown linen, or maybe you have seen me wear my “Maria” – the long sleeved version.

I have to say I feel very tempted to knit another version in “Bonsai” or maybe “Seduce” (also from Berroco) just to see how it would come out…and, after all, you only need 3 or 4 skeins of each. It is a simple design, easy to knit, yet the drapey yarn makes it quite special.

Anyways, I have to leave you now with a WIP picture, since I need to go sit on the couch and finish so I can wear it tomorrow.
