Oh my gosh...it's a shrug !!!



So here she is. Miss BN 2006 ! No really this is one of my fantastic booksellers Jennifer. She asked me if I could make her a shrug. So I showed her the one from the most recent cover of KNIT IT. She wanted the heavy thick and quick yarn, and the goldenrod color, she is is very much into earth tones.

I have read that many are having problems with this shrug. I don't know if it's a conversion issue or a gauge problem, but I had no problems except my laziness in finishing it. I finished it right on time too, it was freezing this weekend and Jennifer wore it at work telling everyone that I made it for her but then she was scared that it would get snagged. I had no problem in seaming it considering that Nan and I have been taking a series of classes at Seaport Yarns http://seaportyarn.com one of which seamless simple seaming and putting your garment together.

I hope that eveyone else completes their shrugs without too many headaches, or too much frogging.

Smooches !

Very nice! See! Aren't you glad you have your own blog?!? Nancy probably wouldn't have shown us that shrug. :-)

It looks fantastic. Glad your co-worked loves it.

I'm not sure why you didn't experience any issues, because I think most people did. The editors of KNITIT! gave the corrections to a KnitLit member, which I'll post in the next few days. Let me know what you think of the updated pattern.
