Coffee Shop Wrap

Felici Self Striping Yarn from Knit Picks

I started the Coffee Shop Wrap a week ago and finally found the time this morning to add the finishing touches, the tassels. As much as I would have loved to have worked on it over the weekend family and chores took first place. Since we finally had a nice day that meant getting out into the garden. Does this mean winter is over? As much as I would hope so (I dislike the cold) I still want time to wear my lovely new wrap.

As soon as I came across the Coffee Shop Wrap pattern on Ravelry I just knew I had to make it. I had the yarn left over from the Under the Sea Blanket I have just finished and I didn't currently have anything else on the go. 

I find knitting very relaxing, more so than crochet. Being such a simple pattern it gave me a good chance to listen to a good audio book as I was knitting.

The book wasn't as good as the first one Me Before You but it was nice to see how Lou's life turned out. Have you read (or listened to) any good books lately? I am always looking for new books to read.

I got one type of dress like this before and it is not good for me. So, while I am writing a review I think of looking another form of dress that will suit my budget.
