Two summers ago (wow, time really does fly!), we went to Colorado to visit family. As my then boyfriend-now husband had never visited Colorado before, we drove to Rocky Mountain National Park. It was a picturesque day and there was a herd of elk by the side of the road. It was truly incredible.
We stopped for lunch and a bit of shopping in Estes Park, which happens to be one of my most favorite towns - the scenery is magnificent and the air smells unbelievably clean. We wandered into a yarn shop called the Stitchin' Den that is three floors of unbelievable yarns most of which I had never seen before. It was a delightful experience as the people who worked in the shop were very friendly.
I purchased the pattern for an Omega Wrap by Chris Bylsma Designs. I used one skein of Madeline Tosh Vintage worsted weight yarn in alizarin and one skein of ribbon yarn that varied the ribbons throughout the skein. Overall, the pattern is great, but I did not account for the fact that I am fairly well endowed and the mobius twist does not sit right across my chest.
To modify it, I wear it as a scarf. I also did not like the "edge roll" in the finishing and would omit it if I used this pattern again. I do love the interplay between the standard wool yarn and the different types of ribbon.
