For Those Who Are Wondering...

I've purchased the yarn to completely finish my Legacy wrap.  With a comment like this from katherinelynn_04, how could I not?

        " RIP IT!! it will bother you if several years down the line it still isn't fixed. Plus, don't you
        want to be an example for your daughter? Finishing what you started and all that? Plus, it 
        might make it's way into being an heirloom. Don't make it an unfinished one! "
Yes, there were many votes for keeping it as is, but the mere fact that it's my own pattern should be enough reason for me to do it up right!

So, with yarn purchased, half the battle is over- I still dread picking up 100 loose stitches- but it is decided- it must be done (if not for me- than for my daughter!).

For those of you asking more details about my weaving project from yesterday, I've added the project to Ravelry with all necessary info.  I can't believe I didn't even post about the yarn used, I guess I was too excited to share the project (it's Cascade Magnum, btw- I've updated yesterday's post, too).  '

And finally, many of you have asked when Legacy will be available alone as a pattern.  I plan on working this weekend to get things ready to roll by early next week- stay tuned!

Almost forgot... I know I will have some questions about them- so I better go ahead and share.  The buttons in the first picture are Jul Silver Pedestal Buttons.  I originally shared about them here and am excited to finally have some in my possession.   I'll show you more when my wrap is totally finished and they are all in place :-)


  1. Congratulations on your fortitude! Lovely buttons too

  2. Wow, generational guilt already! However, you will feel better having done it right. Even though you will have a lot of leftover yarn!

  3. that is sage advice...I always think I can live with a mistake but it ends up bothering me! you won't regret it once it's done.
