So the shrug is finished and I’m not happy. What is it about me and really long projects? I end up hating them either because I’ve made some changes on my own and messed up, or…this. Maybe I just don’t understand how a shrug is supposed to fit? I knew the one size fits all was going to be a gamble because I’m a well-padded woman and I used needles two sizes too large just for this eventuality. It doesn’t appear to have worked 100%. Will I wear it? Yup. I didn’t spend all that time to let a little thing like correct fit stop me from wearing it! Here is the pattern link: Harvest Shrug. If you’re thin and like the look, go for it!
Now onto my much anticipated (by me!) Hawaiian inspired shirt – finally! I don’t have much time since it’s almost mid-August and I will be writing this one as I go. It will be simple, but if I have to figure out the pattern, it’s going to take awhile. Wish me luck!
