Well--practice is what i do with cheaper yarns until I feel like I can do the REAL thing in a better yarn!! It does feel yummy though, because it's a baby yarn! So I'll have a "practice" shrug for me, and my dil and mom will have "REAL" ones!! :D

Thanks for the compliments though--they really help me to go on and do the real things!! :XX:

It turned out beautiful! Nice lace work on the cuffs too. Why not try Streakers in Sad Song Pink...nice rich pink shades.

I was almost afraid to look with "streaker" in the title...a streaker wearing a shrug! ;)

Looks great and like a fun project, even if for practice!

Whoops!! I didn't even think about the "Streaker" streaking!! It was a fun knit, I love the lacy sleeves, but I think I'll have to find something a little less expensive than Streaker brand wool to do it--it would cost about $50, and for me, it's just too much!! :inlove:
