Up until now, I've relied on my red boots.
I love my red boots. This purchase was inspired by Dave Alvin (of the Blasters) after a solo club show in the late 80s. He was the coolest man alive, and he worked those red boots. They did their time in the regular rotation, now to be sadly relegated to holiday wear.
While the boots are awesome, I wanted something a little different. I decided I needed a Christmas wrap/stole/scarf to add a splash to my normal routine.
So, I introduce my 2006 Christmas Wrapping!
This wrap uses about one and a half skeins Karabella Gossamer and was knit on 17s (50 stitches across for six feet in garter). While this wrap is light as a feather, it really adds just the right amouth of warmth. My photos don't how the wrap in it's fuller state, but it's really lovely. Plus, I do love the fact that its lightness allows me to wear it as a scarf, too. To be honest, yarn was a splurge for me, but I plan on wearing the heck of this thing. Even if it is 70 degrees outside!
