The Isla Wrap

It was all about the knitting this weekend. I put the vest on hold to knit a quick wrap, and then picked up the vest again.
Pattern: Isla Wrap by Jessica Vinson (you can find this for free on Ravelry)
Needle: US 8
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Mediumweight (Rosemary Rocks colorway)

I was running out of yarn, so I omitted two repeats of the folded neck band. I had to block this aggressively to get the length right, but am happy with how it turned out. And I love this yarn! Blue Moon Fiber Arts' colorways are consistently beautiful. 

I always feel sneaky when I knit something other than socks with sockweight yarn. :)

Here is the progress I've made with the vest. 
I'm in the middle of reading Fables: The Good Prince and John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath. This may sound like a weird combination of reading material, but they work surprisingly well together.
