Since the air conditioning in church always froze my dear daughter in her pretty sleeveless dresses, I attempted to make her a little shrug to warm her shoulders and arms. I found a simple pattern through a web search - http://flyinghooks.blogspot.com/2007/05/fo-girls-simple-openwork-shrug.html - and we bought two balls of Lion Brand Jiffy yarn on closeout from Michael's craft store. The yarn has a whiteish, bluish tint, but there are flecks of green and pink in there, perfect to wear with almost all of her dresses.
And the results are here -
It's made my girl very happy, and I continue to be tickled to have successfully made something practical.
