Foaming Waves Wrap

The Foaming Waves Wrap aka Queen Lili'uokalani Wrap is finished. It had languished a bit since it wasn't a good travelling project and I kept getting distracted by other at home projects, but I went to tea with some friends Sunday and was suddenly inspried by the idea of having it as a great wrap for over air conditioned areas. And it was.

I made up the pattern. I cast on about 200 stitches, used the foaming waves stitch from my stitch a day calendar, decided to widen it so started increasing at the edges a bit, then stopped and re-started increasing creating a wavy edge at the side. While at one point I worried that I was going a bit nuts pattern wise with such a vivid colorway, I think it worked. Even with the wideness of knitting this longways there are still pools of color and places of great contrast. This yarn is beautifully painted and I almost think this could just hang on the wall so I could stare at it.
