Taa daa

I'd like a pat on the back please, I've actually finished my 4ply wrap!  Yay for me!!
Also, a question for you.... do you 'car craft'?
This wrap was a long slow knit with colours that I wasn't too 'wrapped' about! (bad pun intentional!)
After having trouble with the very first step (the cast on), then I was increasing wrong, then the saga with the broken knitting needles, add that this was mainly a 'car craft' project, phew this was such a slow project but hey, it's finally finished!  Yay! 
I'm actually beginning to like the colours now and I use the wrap as a big scarf which has come in handy with long walks down to the beach in this Tasmanian winter!
More piccies & deets on Ravelry here.
So, do you 'car craft'?  I'm looking for my next 'car craft' project & need some ideas...
ps... for those that are unsure what a 'car craft' is ... it is a project that is easily knit/crocheted/sewn that you pop into the car to work on for those long road trips or when you have to 'patiently' wait for someone in the carpark etc...

  1. I'm glad the colours are growing on you, because I love them. On the other hand, if you continue to hate them, send it my way. It looks so soft and warm, I just want to snuggle up in it. I'm going to put my cardi on now, and pretend!

  2. Oh it looks fab! Job well done for sure!

    And I'm definitely a car crafter! I love beanies in the car, on circs, just round and round, no ends to the row, so when you arrive, you can just drop it and get going :)

    1. Thankyou! And yes, it best to craft than sit there & twiddle your thumbs!

  3. I am a car crafter I hate to do nothing! Usually crochet or hand sew projects! The wrap is lovely!

    1. I'm not brave enough to sew in the car - besides, if I sewed then I would need my glasses - I can knit without needing them.
