FO: Drops 110-28 - my gray shrug / bolero
Hi!
I still owe you my second vacation project from this summer. I finally made pics to show.

It is the Bolero 110-28 by Drops. I made it from Drops Nepal (not Alaska) and in a darker color than listed.

This is a really nice and practial piece for sporty dress up. I do like wearing it and get nice compliments about it.

Here it is:










You can find more pics on Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/projects/hype...-rib-in-alaska

but I do not want to flood this thread with images.

Unfortunately I now have to make not just 1 but 2 more, since people I really like want to have one. So I need to make it. But there are no deadlines and the wishes go for x-mas for one and a birthday-gift for june for the other and I will make both, no problem.

This piece is such a fun knit!

thanks again!
and, yes, the way I know it, it is raspberry stitch, but if there is a difference to blackberry stitch I would look more puzzled than ever
my brain is on auto-repeat at night about this stitch as I am waiting for my new yarn delivery to make one just like this for my aunt. I guess it is time I start this project!

Nice work! I believe this stitch is also known as the popcorn stitch and bramble stitch, among others...4 rows for pattern: Row 1: purl across; Row 2: p3 together, k1, p1, k1 in same stitch; Row 3: purl across: Row 4: k1, p1, k1 in same stitch, p3 together.

I'm working on the Cable Bramble Afghan and slip the first stitch purlwise and knit the last stitch. If I can get my camera to work I'll post a photo later today.

yup, that is how it works. You just work yourself into trance but I am now SO good at kpk in the same stitch... it is just one seesaw motion for me. I am looking forward for the new one I will make (and just wait for my yarn, right now. The same one again.
