Can I just say how much I love my new wraps? And how much I want to keep them, despite the fact that I have absolutely no use for them?
I'm now a huge pebble weave fan. The texture is absolutely dreamy... cushy, squishy, smooshy, stretchy. The yardage did shrink up a bit more than I anticipated in the dryer, but I'm sure it will stretch out again with use. The length with these things can be so subjective, I"ve learned there's no point stressing that they're a few cm off. Next wash it will measure different anyway.


As usual, the last few metres nearly gave me an ulcer from worrying about running out of warp. I look at the beam and freak out that there can't possibly be enough left to finish--the same feeling you get when the gas light comes on when you're driving in the middle of nowhere. I run to the computer to check and re-check my calculations. And every time, it works out just fine. Every time.

The colours are lovely too. Wish there was a way to touch it through the computer screen. :)

The design on this is just beautiful. You always have me dreaming of another custom, even though I really have quite enough wraps in this house!

I do that, too, when I've measured and measured and measured the length of something I need to cut. I always end up adding extra to the end, just to make sure.

I never need it. :P
