FO Shrug and Tube top
This is the Bare Necessities Tube Top and Shrug from Vogue Knitting Holiday 2004 Takhi Stacy Charles Advertising Section

I did it in Patons Classic Merino in Aran. this was one of my first projects for MYSELF. when I got back into Knitting I kept knitting for everyone else. this is an old FO that I finally took a picture of. I obviously can only wear it on the weekends when I go out. let me know what you think

That is beautiful!! If I didn't have stretch marks, I would make one in every color and I wouldn't just wear it only on weekends, lol!!!!!!

Oh wow! That is an awesome tube top! The cables are gorgeous with the yarn!

You know...the next time my daughter tells me that knitting isn't cool, I'll show her your FO. It's quite obvious that you are hip, my dear.

GREAT job!

Auburnchick, its funny that you say that. I show people the same one when they tell me knitting isn't cool,ie why would a somewhat young somewhat stylish woman knit. Then they all want me to make them one. I always like to say, I'm not your grandma so its not gonna be your grandma type of knitting.
