Summer Shrug
Finally got some pictures of my summer shrug I finished a few weeks ago. I was really excited about this project but not completely thrilled with the finished project. I was making up the pattern as I went along and definitely learned a lot - that part I'm pleased with, but the whole thing came out just a little too large (especially the sleeves). It's Knit Picks shine in worsted and so super soft so I wear it a lot anyway. Now I just have to make another one that fits me better and write down the pattern while I do it! Thanks for looking everyone! :-)







The same pictures are on my blog in a larger size if you want a closer look.

That's so cute!!! Please do write down the pattern! I'd pay for that pattern.

I agree..write down the pattern..that's very clever of you. From the front with your arms extended as they are the sleeves actually look comfortable and not too big as such. There's just a little bulge in the back. The colour really suits your complexion and the cabling style pattern is really lovely and should hold shape very well.

very pretty! i agree that the sleeves look great. i think just the back near your neck looks a little too wide on you. beautiful borders and lace!
