Canal Grande Wrap Finished!

Canal Grande wrap 
My Canal Grande scrap wrap is all finished!  It's blocked, the ends are woven in, and it's ready to toss around my shoulders!  This was a great stash buster for using little partial balls of yarn leftover from socks and other projects.  I used 365 grams of fingering weight yarn by knitting this (figuring on an approximate average of about 400 yards per 100 grams, that's 1,460 yards).  Blocked, it measured 22 inches by 87 inches, but it bounced back a few inches lengthwise after I unpinned it.  It's still a great size for wrapping around a jacket or coat.

I enjoyed knitting this and I'm really happy with the finished wrap.  The only issue I had with it was my own inability to count, but I found that if I'd count stitches on wrong side rows, I could stay on track.

I could definitely see myself making this again at some point, when the leftovers start piling up!
