I only have the wrap portion of this completed, not the scarf, but I am pleased as punch with the results. I wasn't going to finish the scarf, but upon further examination of the book's picture, the model is wearing the wrap with the scarf attached. The yarn, Andean Silk from Knit Picks, was a dream to knit with.

Wow ! How long did that take ?  I love the projects in that book but haven't actually made any of them yet. It is inspiring though.  I only wish Knitpicks would ship to the UK.

I am almost ashamed to say that it took about five months only because it got to be so tedious and boring. On the whole, it was a quick knit, but I get bored easily and it was coming to the end of my term teaching. The last two feet I knit in about a day and a half because I told my husband I refused to move from the couch until it was finished. The pattern, as complicated as it looks, was easy to memorize (took two repeats to have it sink in).

Sorry KnitPicks doesn't ship to the UK. Is there anyone in the states that you know whom would ship an order to you?

Wow, you did a great job.  I looked at that book in the bookstore and want it really badly!
I have some Andean Silk, your wrap must be so soft.  It is wonderful yarn and really affordable.

That's really pretty!  You should knit the scarf, too.  I think it looks really pretty all together in the book.  Good job!
