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?

Knit Socks: Making a Rounded Toe
Knit Socks: Making a Rounded Toe

There's nothing like a pair of handknit socks. You can use gorgeous sock yarn, choose your stitch pattern, and take them with you wherever you go. One thing I've learned over the years is how to customize socks to fit my feet, and I like a rounded toe. It's important for me because my feet are fairly straight across the toes, and a pointy toe just ends up flopping around empty. 

Kelley likes a rounded toe, too, and she's developed a recipe for making them for her toe-up socks. She creates her rounded toe by spreading out the increases, separating them with a growing number of knit rounds in-between.
