Little Silk Shrug

It took me some time to select a project from "Lace Style." Everything is beautiful! After enjoying the book for a while, I finally selected the "Little Silk Shrug." Instead of the yarn called for in the pattern, I chose to work with Maldive, Queensland Collection, a cotton/acrylic/viscose blend. I really like the results so far. The fiber flows nicely over my needles and the openwork of the pattern makes for a nice supple feel. This is such a simple pattern to follow, only four repeat rows for the pattern, and two of those are purl! The size of the project and simple pattern make this a very portable project. I'm anxious to finish this so I can move on to the next pattern.
