Since I've never done intarsia before, I made a shrug to test out my abilities before I make the dream sweater I'm planning. For this shrug, I used rtrgrrl's cropped shrug/hoodie pattern. The real thing won't be EXACTLY like Rinoa's sweater because I just can't get my head around ribbed intarsia and because I want sleeves, not arm warmers. And I want it short.

Anyway, without further ado, on to the shrug:

Intarsia on the back:

I hope you liked it!

That is a really cute shrug. Im a HUGE fan of FF8 (lol, tiny crush on squall, not gunna lie). I cant wait to see the final sweater.

BTW, did you make that afghan below the shrug, because it is gorgeous!

Thanks, guys!

Yeah, I made the baby blanket, too. It was supposed to be for my niece, but my mom said it was so gorgeous that I should keep it for whenever I have kids. So that thing will be lying around for about five years but whatever. It was a pain in the butt, though.

The pattern looks really dramatic on the red yarn.  This is really inspiring to see!  (Why does Square make such deceptively complicated clothing designs?!  XD)

If there is a way to pm a file, I don't know what it is. Sorry!

Maybe I can tear my hubby away from his ROH dvd a little later and I'll get him to take some pictures of me in the hoodie.
