Work In Progress: Every Way Wrap

Happy 2013 folks! Hope this new year is prosperous and productive for everyone!

Found this pattern in an old issue of Interweave Knits while thumbing through my knitting magazine collection. I initially started it with the British wool yarn that I bought at Rhinebeck a couple months ago. I soon discover something wasn’t quite right. The cable pattern design wasn’t showing up like the display picture. The pattern requires use of worsted yarn knitted at a size 9 needle to meet gague. I discover after googling the wool yarn I had bought online that it’s actually sport weight yarn.

Briefly I was bummed, as I loved the variegated color and how it was appearing knitted up thus far. But soon found another stash of wool that I was able to use; some Brown Sheep Wool I had bought from Rhinebeck the previous year and never got around to knitting with.

And then I run into another snafu. While at a recent knit-up gathering in Brooklyn, a friend who previously had knitted with the pattern before said she remembered there was some errata with the cable directions, something I was completely unaware of. After a bit of googling I realize there indeed was a published error, but managed to find a correction via someone’s post in a knit forum. I’m exhausted. At this point it’s now my third time casting on for this pattern. Fortunately I’m on vacation and had some time to spend figuring out the changes and finally made some significant progress.

I’m quite happy with the results thus far. The only issue I have now is that I’m probably short of yarn and I may need to track down at least one more skein. I should be finished hopefully by the end of the month. Tell me what you think.
