New Project: BUBBLES bubbles Wrap

This project has been alluded to in a previous post, but here are the details (though also available on Ravelry)...

This is a pattern called "BUBBLES bubbles" by Carol H. Rhoades. It can be made into a scarf or a wrap, requiring 1 or 2 skeins of Brooks Farm Acero, respectively. The pattern was purchased at Brooks Farm during this year's MS&W, as well as two skeins of Acero for the wrap. The pattern calls for size 6 needles but I'm using size 7 because that's what I have right now. Bad me - I didn't bother to gauge my stitches. I hope that doesn't affect the final project.

My progress so far - I'm on the third repeat of the bubbles pattern:

And here is a close-up showing what the pattern looks like knitted. You can see why the pattern is called "BUBBLES bubbles". I hope this photo is helpful to other people making the wrap as there is not a photo included with the pattern.

The Mistress and I are both making the wrap so we're knitting together long-distance. I've been a bit distracted lately with another project so my progress overall is slow. I'm hoping to have it completed by the end of July - but that depends on whether or not I get bored with it and/or other projects get in the way.

I'm off on another business trip today. Sadly, no yarn stores are nearby. But do I really need more yarn???

It looks so pretty! I love your yarn. :) I had to start over, and I got the edging done. I tried to restart the pattern, but kept adding stitches. I will let you know when I get a little further with it. I can't wait. You've given me inspiration.
