FO: Wisp

Hooray, the FO parade!  I did a major cleaning of my studio space this week and rediscovered a bunch of 90% finished projects, so I wove in about a zillion ends while watching movies on Netflix.  I still have way too many WIPs, but I'm hoping to chip away at the ones that are basically done except for small amounts of knitting, blocking, or sewing.

This wrap is called Wisp, a free pattern from an older issue of Knitty.  I knit it from a skein of Colinette Parisienne, a mohair/nylon blend laceweight that I bought in California probably four years ago.  It sat in my stash for quite a while before I realized that it would be the perfect yarn for this pattern.  I had a really fun time picking out buttons, but was a little stuck on what outfit I could pair with a bright blue wrap with lemon yellow buttons.  Luckily, between then and now, I found this adorable little yellow plaid vintage dress!  (We'll talk about my plaid obsession later.)  It's too hot to wear this wrap right now - when we took pictures it was about 90 degrees F! - but I think it will be a fun accessory to pair with dresses as cooler weather hits.
