I bought 7 skeins of Knit Picks Andean Silk a few years ago to make a sweater. Sometime after I bought it, I decided I didn't care much for making sweaters, so I looked for a new use for the yarn.
Andean Silk is a great yarn: 55% alpaca, 23% silk and 22% merino wool. It has since been discontinued by Knit Picks, but I do like it. It's soft, warm, and cushy. The color I used was "truffle", a deep brown color.
I decided to make Michelle Wang's Topiary with it, and set in.
This pattern on the left, right, and middle, has a cable that needs to be crossed on every right side row. I wasn't anticipating how much I would dislike that, but it really was a deflater for me. I had to force myself to do 14 rows a day, and while I enjoyed the cable pattern panels, I hated those cabled borders.
Nevertheless, I finally finished it and it turned out great.
My photographer Elijah helped me with these photos. Excuse my no-makeupness. :)
And while I really like the result, I don't see myself using this wrap. Do you? If you like it, comment below or on my FB page and I'll send it to you!
