Wrapped in Lux

At Stitches Midwest, I ran across an interesting yarn that I had never seen before. Lana Grossa Lace Lux is a 67% rayon, 33% wool blend that had the feel of silk mohair. I was so taken with it and curious about knitting with it that I told my cousin-in-law that if she bought the yarn, I would knit the wrap on display for her. Well, it took me awhile, but here it is finally!

The pattern is called Wrapped in Lux, but I didn't follow it very closely. I ended up using a different pattern for the lace edge, called Shower Lace. The rest of the body is just stockinette. Since the lace is directional, I knit up both ends of the wrap and did a kitchener graft in the middle.

The wrap is 72" x 20", drapes beautifully, and I just love the silk-like sheen in the yarn and the subtle mohair-like brushed effect. This is a very clever blend! I did buy some of the yarn for myself, now I just have to figure out what to do with it.
