A coworker of mine has been really great - she gives me a ride when we close the store together, and she was a sympathetic ear and had some great advice when I was having problems with one of the managers.

After some super secret intel, I ended up making her this wrap:

It's Lion Brand Homespun in the colour "Tudor".  A simple pattern, that basically went in rows of: sc, dc, sc, broomstick lace (groups of 3).

I thought the yarn would obscure the broomstick lace, but it turns out that when you wear it, it all stretches out and shows it off nicely. ^_^

I hope she likes it!

That's really pretty.  I love the colours of the yarn you chose, it looks all delicate and pretty, which goes with the pattern.  I bet your co-worker loves it.

Those colors are so soft and remind me of Spring.  Beautiful.

That's a beautiful wrap and such a thoughtful gift. Tudor is my favorite of the homespun. Grin

Long days and pleasant nights. Smiley
