A lovely shrug, hyperactive. Two more though. You are a good friend.

Very nice! I particularly like shrugs with the longer back - this one looks like a perfect length!

thanks!
The girl that I got the second request from is a VERY good friend who would and will do anything for me. She does get the shrug for sure. She has offered to pay the yarn. If I "just make it" I will take her up on that. If I make it as birthday or x-mas present, I will just give it to her. Then that is my gift and that is that.

For my aunt (the 1st request) I make it for money (her idea). She wants to contribute 70 my way (the yarn is about 20 at drops) and feels like she is getting something awesome for a very low price. She does not knit but is willing to pay. This, though, I promised, is the only payjob I take for now. I do have a job and make more money in it than I could with knitting (I think). I need my spare time to be spare. But for once... she just helps me finance my yarn shopping and justified the order I placed this weekend that contains several other small amounts I needed and I only pay once for shipping.

All good on that side of things. Just a LOT of raspberry stitches.

OooooLaLa! You look absolutely gorgeous in your shrug! The knitting is impeccable. The ribbing bands are perfect! No wonder you have so many compliments and "orders" for 2 more! Very inspirational knitting! KUDOS to you!

I feel honored!
For me the question usually is: Why should it not look like this? But then again you are blind to your own work in a way (which also makes you love the ugly things, so it is alright).
I will soon have my yarn!!! And then I go about making the twin for my aunt. I will be more than happy to change to another color, when making the one for my friend.
I have noticed, though, that the shrug looks a lot better on skinnier people. But well, I am not, so I love it the way it looks on me. But I will make it the same size for both others (they tried it on) and it looks really good despite the difference in shape.

thanks, it is a fun stitch and a fun pattern. The effect is great, too. And amazingly the backside is all flat! I could hardly believe it when I found out!
