wrapped up

Not so long ago, I fell in love with the Purl Bee's Amazing Seed Stitch Wrap:

While I love the original and wish I could make it out of the recommended Anzula, Jade Sapphire, and Blue Sky Alpacas' yarns, I just couldn't afford trying the kit. So I decided to finally give into my desire to have this wrap, and began collecting colors of Malabrigo Worsted -- an affordably sumptuous yarn that comes in a stunning range of color. 

I mimicked the Purl Bee's original palette progression but cut out a few colors that I couldn't find great matches to. I still would love to make the beautiful version on their blog, but for now I'll settle for seed stitch in super-soft merino. I haven't gotten to start yet -- I'm waiting to knock a few more wips off my list first!
