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 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
