Laura's Wrap

Boy have my fingers been busy!  I am just about finished with Laura's Wrap.  Let me share some pictures!
Excuse the scarf pin.  I had decided once I put it on the dress form that I did not like where I had the buttons and button holes, so the left back ribbing is coming out and I am going to do it so it will button up in this fashion.  I have already got it ripped and and have a few rows of ribbing worked. 

While playing around with this I found another way to wrap it around the body which I think looks really pretty.
I basically wrapped it the opposite with the ribbing at the top.  Cute!  Whatcha think?  And once I get the buttons in I think it will give me a couple more ways to wear it.  I'm so happy with this.  I am going to try and get some picture of it on my body once I get it complete. 
All this color makes me happy!

I also dusted off my size "P" crochet hook to crank out a ruffle scarf out of some yarn I picked up at JoAnne's Fabric.  It is so soft and squishy and full of texture and color.
Yes, it is a little longer than I would have liked to have it, but that's okay by me.  Once I put it on I didn't want to take it off.  I have some really soft homespun in this, some fun fur, and some pretty variegated.  I haven't decided if I am going to keep this one or if it will go in my etsy shop.  
 
"Ruffle-y"

I'm off to do some Saturday morning things.  Plans are to sit in and watch a movie tonight and work on some knitting!  Tah-Tah!

I'm also very interested in the wrap! I love the colors and the pattern. Unfortunately I don't know how to knit or crochet; could I hire you to make one for me? For real!

I LOVE your wrap...I would like to know if you could point me in the direction to a crochet pattern for something very similar. I have a friend who wants something like this but I do not know how to knit. Thanks!
