I posted this in my blog, but someone said I should post it here too.

This is another wavy lace wrap. This is the third one, and it is being auctioned of at the school Gala on Friday. The yarn I ordered was not the beautiful creamy color I had envisioned, so I dyed it after I was done. There are some more pictures of the dyeing process at my blog here (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12906&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=1632).

Sorry I have posted a plethora of these in the past, so I forgot to add the details. It is a vogue knitting pattern. The stitch charts are posted for free, and you can get through it with just them, so you don't need the magazine. Here (http://www.vogueknitting.com/200703/pdf/exclusives-vkf05_web_chart15.pdf) is the link. It is the Wavy Lace Wrap. I used panache, and have used panache from knitpicks for all three of my wraps. The reason I like this fiber for this project is that the wrap comes out feeling luxurious, but it isn't TOO fancy. In other words, it looks and feel great no matter where you wear it, but you don't look weird laying around on the patio with it on either. Does that make sense? :shrug:
Size 9 or 10 needles means this thing knits up quick. The pattern can be intimidating at first, but after the third one, I don't even have to use the charts anymore. :teehee:

Forgot to add. I used cherry kool-aid to dye it.
