I just finished this and I am sooo excited! I used Simply Soft cause I simply didn't know what I was doing and didn't want to waste a big investment. This is for my 26-yr-old daughter who has been eagerly awaiting it! I think the total cost was about $6 and was a pretty quick knit with all those holes in it!

Thank you, everybody!

Here's (http://www.lanagrossa.com/service/mdm/08_2005/index.html) the pattern link. By the way, it only has one size, small, and my daugher is definitely a medium. It's so stretchy, it really fits a wide size range, I think - probably from 6 to 10.

You guys are all too sweet! Thanks. I need to be more vocal about everyone else's stuff on here! I always look and oooh and ahhh, but I don't always tell people how great their stuff is. But I just love to see it all - it gives me ideas on the next project.

Actually I'd use this yarn again for something - I'm already thinking this (http://www.lanagrossa.com/service/mdm/05_2005/index.html) or this (http://www.ruf.rice.edu/~lanz/Paris_shrug.pdf) - both for my daughter, of course.

I need a jaw dropping emoticon...absolutely beautiful---both the wrap and your daughter...she's looks so happy!!!

WTG!! :cheering: :cheering:
Is the wrap hard? I glanced at the pattern and quickly closed it when I saw numbers and charts and German... :roflhard:

Also, Simply Soft is what brand?? I love the look of it!!

Thank you, everyone! She's a pretty happy camper anyway, but she loves it when I make something for her. So she's fun to knit for!

That is gorgeous. It looks great on her. Was it pink or a purple color? I have to admit I like working with Caron Simply Soft.
