The Alice Starmore Seaweed Wrap is finished and I’ve kept myself wrapped in her all weekend. As I’ve mentioned before, this has been my all-time favorite project to knit. The warm and squishy Hebridean 2ply is now my favorite yarn, too. I’ve aptly named this wrap ‘The Orchid’ because the yarn color is ‘Wild Orchid’ and, I must admit, I am a big fan of the television series LOST. The Orchid is one of the Dharma Inititative sites on the show…LOL
When I wear this wrap I feel very feminine. I think I am quickly becoming enraptured with shawls. When I was a little girl I would often fold my baby blanket into a triangle and wear it as a shawl as we pretended to be frontier girls. A feeling of warmth and security washes over me when I wear The Orchid. I know it sounds strange but it is true.
Now………the big question………… to add fringe or to not add fringe? What do you think? Since this yarn came from Scotland and this is a Scottish shawl, fringe seems appropriate. But then, I’m not really a great fan of fringe so am undecided and would love to hear what you all think!
