post 6: 3 things rectangular wraps

Shawl wrap, stole... whatever. There's something about a rectangular length that is 1) elegant  2) also a bit like wearing your security blanket. 3) Added bonus, no shaping while knitting. 

First up, Box of Rain  from Apple Tree Knits. When I wrote about her new collection and shooting it last post,  I had too much too include. So it gets it's own lead today!
Oh, the details!  It's a beautiful center out stockinette rectangle, with lace edging.  It's the kind of thing you can wrap up in and instantly feel amazing. It'd make a fab new mom gift, to wrap herself or the baby in .

And if that much fingering weight knitting is not your jam, consider this
 
Laight by Kirsten Kapur--in her Shawl Book One and on Ravelry as a single pattern, in aran weight yarn.

And I can't leave out Glama from Drop Dead Easy Knits. You'd think I'd be immune to its charms, what with carting of this sizable sample around the country to trunk shows--however last week Kirsten showed me a stunning red one, also in Malabrigo Rasta, and I fell for it all over again. Bulky yarn but the drop stitches make it drape so beautifully. 


Ok that's my Three Things for this Thursday posted a few hours later than intended.  More to look at, from  links on Carole's blog

Okay. I'll admit it. I want to knit Box of Rain based on the name alone. (But it's gorgeousness makes me want to knit it even more!) I have wanted to knit myself a Glama forEVER. I just may need to grab some of that red Malabrigo and cast on. . .

Wow! Stunning wraps in this post. I need to do more of the rectangular patterns... I love making wraps, but have been stuck in a triangular shawl rut lately.

All 3 are gorgeous but Box of Rain might be my favorite!
