I swear I didn’t mean to do it. I was just browsing at Loop when I realized they had it. THE yarn. Blue Skies Alpaca Sport.


When I saw the pattern for the Turkish Wrap in VK Fall 05 I immediately liked it but I didn’t like the colorway for me. I thought I’d change around the colors but I’m not a fan of picking out colors online. I also wasn’t sure if I wanted to shell out the bucks for this wrap in Alpaca.
But once I saw the yarn at Loop I decided I had to have it! After about 45 minutes of swapping out yarns I picked out these colors. All in all I’ve cooled down the palette, removed the bright reds, and replaced them with greens. I hope I picked out good colors. My last color-choosing experience wasn’t so fruitful.
I’m off to cast-on now so it shouldn’t be long before we know how I did!

  1. This is why I love you and your blog. Just browsing. Hmmm. That doesn’t sound at ALL familiar.
    Also, I want to knit that TOO. AND River. And, like, everything else you suggest. You should be a hypnotist… ;-);-)

  2. That’s my favorite yarn and I love the colors you chose. Dont you just love how Loop hypnotizes you into buying? you go there with such good intentions…

  3. I’ve suddenly taken a liking to that wrap too but am overwhelmed with choosing the “right” colors. I’ll be interested in seeing how yours turns out. I love the colors that you picked.

  4. Your colors are great! I just took a look at the pattern and look forward to hear how the whole managing three to FOUR colors (!!) per row works!

  5. That is a lovely wrap–I still have not picked up the VK, but it looks like I need to with that lovely piece (and the others I have heard about!)
    I love the colors you chose. Beautiful combos.
    Have a nice Sunday, Jody 😉

  6. That looks very promising. I too have been fighting off the colour bug lately. Intarsia makes so many people cringe, but I have no fear. I will watch with interest.

  7. That wrap is going to be gorgeous. And I really like the colors you picked out for it. I think it will be just as lovely as the photo, if not more.

  8. I had the same thoughts about the Turkish wrap – love the pattern, want to change the colors a little…can’t wait to see how yours is going to look!

  9. What lovely colors. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I just finished that cape and love it. I will warn you; I ran out of black. It may not hurt to pick up a second skein.
