Lacy Shrug baby
In the July 2006 Creative Knitting Magazine I found this adorable shrug, but am a bit scared to do it by myself. There are a lot of directions I havent run into before.

Anyone else want to knit this little cutie?

Since I'll be making the 18mo size (450 yd), I ordered KnitPicks Shine in Hydrangea. With shipping, about $12! Usually I get my orders from KnitPicks in 3-5 days. I don't think I have size 3 needles, so I'll be getting those when I buy the magazine.

This should be fun!!

If you haven't used it before, I think you're really going to like this yarn. It has a natural sheen to it that I really liked for a jumper I made. Slides off the needles quickly too, but use something you know won't make it prone to splitting (typical cotton) - maybe Addi's or other metal?

Love to see a picture of your yarn colors ladies!
I still haven't decided :rollseyes:

update
Thought I should give an update:

Well, I'm still waiting on my yarn to arrive. There's been a glitch in the delivery. :rollseyes: When my husband submitted our change of address form online 2 weeks ago to the USPS, our mail delivery stopped immediately rather than on the date he gave. For several days we didn't receive our mail and had to contact our local post office to resolve this problem. Since I ordered my yarn while not receiving mail, my yarn got lost. KnitPicks has been really nice about handling this situation. If my yarn is not at my new address, they will send another shipment!
