Finished One Toned Shrug

Filed under: Knitting — yarnnut @ 1:35 am

I got around to taking pictures of the One Toned Shrug that I finished on last Wed at a knitting get together. All I did that day was weave in the ends but what a difference that makes. Here are some pics.

Pattern: Two Toned Shrug from Fitted Knits

Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, 2 skeins.

Needles: Size 4 Addi Turbos

Time to completion: July 28-August 15 or 19 days.

Opinion: I like this garment. I never thought I’d be one for shrugs but this one was easy to knit and quite versatile. The blue is a really pretty color. I pretty much followed the pattern and as far as I can see there are no errors in it. I have NEVER finished a piece this quickly. Thanks to Susan for inspiring me to concentrate on one project at a time. I bought yarn for the Dropped Stitch Lace tank and the Short Sleeved Cardigan which I’ll start after I finish Short N Sweet from Happy Hooker.

Thanks for looking everyone!

  2. Oh, I really like that! I could use one of those in black to wear with all those sleeveless cocktail dresses. Or maybe one in green to wear with the bridesmaid’s dress I’m supposed to be shopping for. Yours is beautiful, and I’m sure you’ll find lots of uses for it.

  3. You are really on a roll. Very nice job. The close-up shows how great your stitch definition is, too.
