I know the last thing anyone expects to see around here is an actual knitting photo, but I cast on the Argosy Wrap over the weekend and could barely put it down. I am through the second repeat of Section 2, and had to force myself to put it away after several hours, because I knew I was getting tired enough to start making mistakes. This pattern is easy but not totally idiot-proof, I do have to pay attention to counting and not losing my place. What is it about watching the stripes change colors? It's just so much fun. I love this pattern, it is Clapotis-like in its ingeniousness, and I marvel at the designer's creativity. The yarn is Noro Kureyon, color 40, and the photo is fairly true to color.
