It Fits!!

I actually knit myself something that isn’t overly huge.  And I’m proud of it. 

It’s the Cotton Candy Stripes shrug found in the Summer issue of Love of Knitting.  I just picked up the magazine at a local grocery store and thought it had some nice projects in it.  This one seemed perfect.

 Here, is the shrug in its circular form.  How you do it?  Knit the back flat, don’t cut your yarn and pick up and knit the cast on edge.  It’s a lot of stitches for that lace ribbing, but it tend to go quickly the more you knit.  I will say binding off was tedious, though.

Below, you can see me in smug pride showing my newest piece.  My DH took the photos.  Want to see the details?  Check it out on Ravelry.

  1. Love the color and it looks AWESOME on you. I have something very similar to that in my crochet queue on Ravelry… I love how the cowl neck keeps me extra warm but no annoying sleeves.
