Here’s the prompt from Linda G. Hill: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wrap/rap.” Use one, use both (for bonus points), use ’em any way you’d like. Enjoy!

This seems an easy prompt to rap about. Wrap is the first step in loom knitting. You can e-wrap all the way around the loom one peg at a time you do it by making the lower case ‘e’ on each peg, or you can warp the loom by laying the yarn over each loop and do a flat-wrap. I use that most now in my socks and hats. The in-between stitch is called a u-wrap. You just make the yarn ‘u’ around each peg. It is tighter than the e-wrap but not as tight as the flat-wrap.

Then as you progress, you find you have to do the wrap and turn to decrease like when you make the heels and toes of socks. It seems hard to do at first but soon it is fun. Unless, like I just did, you lose your place. Now I am having to tink (unknit) my heel as I don’t know where I made my mistake. Urgh!

The clouds looked like this only white against the blue background. The picture is by Hans at

Now, if I can wrap my head around this next issue. It is nearly officially Fall. Tomorrow! Wow! Today was beautiful. The perfect temperature. The only cloud in the sky looked like kissy lips. By the time I had my cell phone ready to take the picture the little cloud was a whisp that didn’t look like anything. Tomorrow there will be a rap, rap, rapping at the pane as the rain comes once again. It is nice that fire season, hot weather, is coming to an end and we’re all still here.


So wrapping up on this stream of consciousness, I see a lot to be grateful for. Mistakes or no, it was a perfect day. And that’s a wrap!
