The Lapis Wrap ~ My Next Project

I'm getting ready to crochet the Lapis Wrap by Yumiko Alexander.  I love the style of this vest and lately I've rediscovered the simple joy of crocheting from a pattern.  Sometimes I can get caught up in designing or free forming.  It's a relaxing break to just follow along. 

I'm trying out a new yarn for this project.  I'm using Uptown DK by Universal Yarn in the color Majestic.  I don't often use acrylics these days, but this is the right weight, it's soft and the words "anti pilling" carry some appeal. The pattern suggests using Universal's Renew Wool, but I wasn't feeling the colors and 100% wool can get a bit toasty here in the Phoenix area.

It looks like a pretty pattern, and I like the color of the yarn you have chosen. I am looking forward to seeing the end result.
