It's A Wrap!

The wrap is done!  I really liked working with this yarn.  I loved the thick and thin feel - the smooth and fuzzy and then of course that little strand of glittery ribbon yarn every so often was delightful!
 I swear, I kept knitting and knitting away, just to get to that one little strand of ribbon yarn.  I think there was only one per ball.
 The yarn is Red Heart Boutique Magical and if it was not so distinctive, I would go out and get a whole bunch more to knit up more scarves!
 The color changes were fantastic as well.
Started:  12 November 12
Finished:  January 1st 2013
Dimensions:  63" X 19 3/4"
Needles:  US 8
Yarn:  Red Heart Boutique Magical
Color:  1406 Hocus Pocus (great name!!)
Lot:  1809
I used a little over 4 balls.
It's my own pattern - Cast on 75, K 6 rows
10 rows stockinette
6 rows garter
then repeat until it's long enough and end with 6 rows garter

It's so fun to have a portion of pattern, or in your case, a portion of the yarn, to help along the progress of a project. This turned out beautifully. I don't think you should let the distinctiveness of the yarn stop you from making another...or two. :-D

That's an awesome scarf. I love all the different textures. The glitter is great, but probably just as well it's used sparingly. I doubt it's very soft :)

Your wrap is lovely with all those subtle colour changes. There looks like a heck of a lot of knitting in it.

I'll start with this. I hate Red Heart. So I find it so surprising saying that I love this. Great colors and texture! It almost looks like handspun. Portions of it anyway. Great job!
