Well I liked my wool Retro Redux Shrug so much that I've made another one in cotton. I used almost 2 skeins of K1C2 Ty-Dy (color: 216 Petals)...size 42...using the same needles it called for in the pattern. This is not a good pic, but the shrug turned out nicely.

Happy Knitting!!!

Tailored Scallops

Here's a blurry pick of the back of "Tailored Scallops." I got the entire back finished in one day:

I'm using Feza's "Fanatic", in Proscribed Colors (thank heavens I found chocolate-and-turqouise yarn!). It's a bit thicker than called for, so I'm using larger needles and adjusting (following the XS instructions for my XL frame, with modifications to make the pieces fit), and it's flying. I got the entire back finished in one day. I was worried, since it's for my sister's wedding, which is sooner than I'd like, but I'm not worried about the time.

I'm worried because I have exactly enough yarn, and if you ever read the Yarn Harlot's blog, you've heard about what a disaster will befall anyone who doesn't get that extra ball of yarn when they have a chance. (I'll be calling my LNS today to see if they've got another bag hidden somewhere!)
