"Time Trades was inspired by a favorite song of mine by songwriter Jeffrey Lewis- the lyrics are about using your time to build on a skill that you can get better and wiser at which knitting is perfectly suited to! This elegant wrap requires a mini gradient set of 5 colors and 2 full size skeins of complementing speckled, variegated or solid yarns. Starting with the darkest color of your gradient, you will gradually fade into the speckled yarns, alternating lace and garter rows for a relaxing but never boring knit."
