I'm very happy to have finished this. It only took me 2 skeins of Bambu and a year to the day I purchased it. :teehee:

Although the pattern suggested to steam block it, I chose to soak it in some Eucalan and block the heck out of it. It measures 71 inches long and 20 1/4 wide.

What a lovely wrap! Those lace patterns look gorgeous, but are also very intimidating. Good for you for tackling it!

Thanks Slim! It was NOT difficult, but it did seem to go on forever.:) And I did other things in the mean time. The pattern is free on the knitty website. http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTconvertible.html It's an eleven row repeat (with all the even sides purling). And since it is rectangular, there's no increases. I do better visually with a chart, so I "converted" the pattern rows using Excel and a knitting font I found on the web; http://home.earthlink.net/~ardesign/knitfont.htm
I believe someone here has made one in wool; and I do want to make another---just not right now. :-P
