So, those of you following my exploits know that I have fallen in love with brioche knitting. On Wednesday night I sat up late and worked away on my I-cord bind off and finally finished my briochexplosion wrap. I loved making it, and as ever I popped a photo up on my instagram feed. I then collapsed into bed and slept the sleep of the smug knitter who has finished a much loved WIP.
In the morning I woke up and looked at my phone. I have never had so many likes for one of my projects as I have had for this wrap. It has really taken me back. The yarns I used were by Lollipop Guild Yarns and Dye Candy, and they really complemented each other. I wanted to go with a denim colour as my neutral tone because I wear jeans so much, and because to my eye denim goes with everything really. Apparently other folk liked it too. A lot.
Anyway, I got to wear it to work on Thursday, like a comfort blanket. And like a comfort blanket it did help me through a particularly stressful day when I had to be a proper grown up and try to do things that I really didn’t want to do. But armed with my cloak of awesomeness I found that I could do anything. It must never leave my side!

It’s awesome! Is the second photo the inside of the item from the first photo?
Thank you so much! Yes it is – the blue side was the right side but the reverse is just as nice!
