I have had a wonderful piece of felted wool from Emma One Sock for at least two years...it's quite heavy, a felted gray knit with fabulous black nubs...

week...so easy that I didn't even use a pattern. I had to make a seam down the back so that I could utilize the selvages...

outside right now, so a heavy wrap like this one isn't comfortable for too long.
It's supposed to get down in the high 20's - low 30's at night, next week, so maybe I can wear it soon.

ruana...or vice versa...

I am still working on my Super Secret knock-off and it has been a godsend this
week; a very dear friend is going through an unspeakable tragedy and any
project I can do to divert my pain for her is welcome. She has no such diversion. Hug your loved ones tight and tell them how much you love them.
Tell them NOW.
