FO: "Charlotte's Shrug"
"Charlotte's Shrug" is a cute little design I spotted in a LYS...on the 2010 LYS TOUR. I just got around to knitting it up. If it fits my daughter, and if she likes it, I will give it to her next Tuesday. I didn't specifically knit it for her....I just knit it. It's a one size fits all. It does fit me, but I think it will look better on her.
Stay tuned....

Edited to add: I just remembered...she's allergic to mohair. Silk Garden is 40% mohair. She gets itchy welts if she even touches it, or if I'm wearing it when we sit together at a movie. She can wear 100% wool, but no funny stuff included like kid mohair or angora rabbit.

This the the shrug that I knit.

Noro Silk Garden, color 269...2 strands held together, plus 1 strand of Saldanha lace weight gets gauge of 10 st = 4" on US13 needle

This is the true color, photo taken by the window.

Here are my Rav notes if you care to look. I've included links and shop contact information on how you can get the pattern from Main Street Yarn shop. They have a Ravelry group, too.

Below is the photo I took in the LYS back in 2010. This photo is the SHOP SAMPLE.
