Shrug Time

Okay, so I haven't knit a sweater yet, but I am getting closer. I just finished this shrug, knit in an 80s stripe pattern out of my scraps of cotton-ease yarn. I used a great pattern by Susan B. Anderson, one of my favorite designers. I'm planning to make a grey wool one for fall/winter, with longer sleeves. And, maybe, smaller sleeves. One problem with losing weight, is things you make might be too small before you even wear them!

Pattern: A Simple Shrug by Susan B. Anderson
Yarn: Cotton-Ease Scraps
Time to Knit: 2 Weeks (2 Weeks! We work today!)
