The End of the Starting Point

Remember that Starting Point mystery knitalong that started last May?  I finally finished it.


Starting Point - A Very Big Wrap

I was only able to stay caught up for the first clue.  Once I realized there was no way I could stay caught up, I was satisfied working on it at my own pace.

Wrapped in the Starting Point Wrap

The pattern stressed that the wrap would be large.  I didn't imagine it would turn out as large as it did.  In fact, I'm pretty sure it's twice as tall as I am.

To be honest, I felt lukewarm about the wrap until I finished it and put it away for a few days.  Once I showed it off a bit at the knit shop and took these photos did I start to really like the finished piece.  I'm still trying to figure out how to wear it.

 Here at the details!

Miss Babs Starting Point Kit in 'My Treasure'

The wrap was made with a Miss Babs kit I purchased at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.  The kit is titled 'My Treasure' and contains the following colors -- Sea Life, Rainforest, Lost Treasure, Franklin, and Old Gold.  I used size 7 needles, but ran out of Franklin and Lost Treasure.  I bought another skein of Franklin, but I replaced Lost Treasure with Old Gold for the very last bit of knitting.  I didn't feel it was worth buying another skein for such a small piece of the wrap.  I did not include any lace in this wrap - I followed the alternate row instructions instead of knitting lace.

I doubt I will want to knit anything this big again, but it was quite the experience and the yarn was really nice to work with.

How would you wear something this large?
