I am very excited about the Joji Locatelli Mystery Wrap KAL that can be found on Ravelry and starts May 12th, Yipee!

This pattern is 20% off until June 23rd. It is an extra large wrap that uses 5 skeins of fingering weight yarn, which we carry oodles of.

Some yarns that I might use areMadelintosh Tosh Merino Light, Twist Light, and Tosh Sock. I also love Zen Garden Serenity 20 and the Zen Superfine Fingering yarn is also nice.

Oh, I can't forget Dream in Color Smooshy.

I will let you know what color combination I find. What yarns will you be using?
