Knitted Pull Through Wrap

A couple of years ago I received several skeins of hand dyed wool yarn.  Really beautiful yarn and I wanted to find the perfect thing to knit for myself.  I came across this pattern on Favecrafts.com and this past summer I started knitting.  This was not a knitting project that I could do mindlessly while watching a movie – so it took time, ok a lot of time!  But to be fair to myself I knitted many other things between the summer and now, picking this project up in-between other projects.  I finished knitting it about a month ago and it has sat on the back of my couch waiting to be blocked – why did I wait so long?!  I don’t know, because blocking takes pretty much no effort.  But having time with the snow outside – I decided it was time!  I love it.
