I forget sometimes that a long, straight swath of stockinette can be as compelling as a ten-color stranded sweater.
Here’s a look at the scale of my version. The gray one is the sample from the Field Guide.
The gray version fits me basically the way it fits the model in the Field Guide.
My turquoise version is the ninth size, scaled up because I wanted to make it more a wrap and less a garment. Kind of a floaty ponchoesque moment.
I reinforced this little join at the top of the back with that loose end.
As ever, witness the Mighty Redemptive Power of Blocking. Here it is, resting comfortably while we got ready for Arne and Carlos.
I took this thing on a quick trip to New York this week, and I have to say, it turned out to be a super versatile piece for travel. I bunched it up in my tote—it collapses into a tiny pile. I wore it inside my coat as an insulating layer, and I draped around myself any number of ways as a scarf.
Here I am with my sissy MK. Happy day all around! Ended up at Kay Gardiner’s youth hostel, life doesn’t get better than that.
