Another Wrap Thingy

We've been sick this week, and I don't mean "we" in the royal sense. I mean all 3 of us were stricken with a slow moving crud. Leading to a pretty uneventful week. But by the weekend we were rallying, and this is what I have to show for it.I made the basic shape in a crazy whirlwind on Friday afternoon, and then stared at it, scratching my head for days. But a trip with friends to the fabric store (and a stop at Trader Joe's for mochi - chocolate this time) gave me just the right boost to add the details and get it done.
It's heavier than the others I've made, more like a lightweight sweatshirt, and super comfy. The print is from an old shirt, so it was a limited resource. It's awesome to have pulled something out of the "project pile", but I definitely could have used a few more inches for the hood (my first hood ever! What!?!) One might call it "loungewear" and it'll make a stellar swim cover-up, but that won't stop me from wearing it anywhere and everywhere.
