As promised a few days ago


Here is the picture of the shrug I knitted. I'm not sure how well you will be able to tell from the photo,but there are 4 large rows, the first everything is purled, the next knitted and so on until finally the very top rolls on itself. It was done in the round on several different size circular needles. It was easy enough for a beginner like me to do. I can see the mistakes I made as I went along, but I wanted something to throw over my shoulders when became chilled around the house. This works. I will probably make another and try to use the yarn recommended, or at least one more similar- it may make the results a little better.

I have the grandchildren for yesterday and today. Once they leave, I hope to get up to the sewing room so that I can participate in the Quiltathon. I want to do a log cabin similar to what JudyL and some others are doing. Not sure how big I will make it- we'll see how far the fabrics I have chosen will take me.

That looks comfy... and I bet the cats would love to duck up under it, mine are always trying to get between my sweatshirt and my t-shirt lol

That leaves your hands free while you knit. Great idea......

I have one almost identical to that. I'll send you a photo shortly. Mine doesn't have the roll at the top but colors are very similar. Could almost be its twin.
