Bhuja Wrap


In yoga "Bhuja" means "arm" or "shoulder.  I actually knit this wrap up for a friend who is very much into yoga.  She explained to me that after doing the yoga they go into the meditation positions, and the body actually gets cold.  This meditation wrap is used to wrap around the arms and shoulders to keep warm.

I feel like I have been working on this forever.  Needless to say I was really thrilled to get it finished and see it on a real live person!

I do like this stitch. It looks so much like a woven piece of fabric.  As you can see I used all variegated yarns and randomly changed them out.

Check it out wrapped around the shoulders with a shawl pin.  Oh my goodness!



 So...I am glad to have this done because I find myself looking at a pile of yarn in these gorgeous Autumn colors and have begun some more granny square action!  I also need to whip out some dishcloths and pot holders for a birthday gift.  

The weekend is coming to an end too fast for me.  I hope to spend the rest of it up kicked back with a crochet hook and maybe a good movie!

Dawn, this is amazing! I love your work - it's always so fantastic. I'm constantly waiting for your next post. I'm an avid crocheter also, and am just learning to knit. You've inspired me so much! Your colour combinations are amazing, and have led me to think more out of the box than I normally would! You kick ass girl!
