Hi, guys.

I finished this shrug on Thanksgiving and would like to share it.  It's from a pattern I bought at a LYS (but it's so simple that if you can cast on and cast off stitches on a WIP, you can figure it out).  I made it with Karaoke yarn, a new fave, provided it holds up, and size 10 needles.  





I made the skirt, too, but it's strobing so it's hard to tell that it's that coverall denim with the little lines in it.  What's that called?  Anyhow, I'm humbly proud because I finally made an "outfit."  Thanks for looking.

Thanks, you guys.  Y'all are so sweet.  I'm using "y'all" because I finished the shrug in Texas, Austin to be exact, where my M-I-L lives.  So, jshires, I saw firsthand the usefulness of the shrug down there!

Perfect description, too.  Train conductor material.  There's a name for it but for the life of me I can't recall it.

junquette and lillesoed, keep at it, you'll get it.  It just takes more practice than most of us -- myself included -- have put toward anything since grade school!

I love that shrug! I've been looking for one to make, and I think this it! Smiley Where on their website can I find it?
I'm jealous of your hair too, by the way. Smiley

You guys have me cheesing from ear to ear!  Thank you SO MUCH!  What a blah day and now I'm feeling so much better.  I'm thinking, gee, maybe life does matter.  Yeah, my day was that blah.  Smiley

jezebel7383 -- thank you!  It's easy peasy hair 'cause I can't be fussing with it, need more crafty time!

I just called Unwind and though the shrug's not on their website, they'd be happy to take orders over the phone -- 818-840-0080.  FYI, their site is http://unwindyarn.com/.  The pattern is called Sherry's (Sherri's?) Easy Shrug and it costs $5.00.  I don't know about postage.

If anyone needs help understanding the pattern, don't hesitate to e-mail me.  My address is on my blog.

Also, if anyone wants to add similar armbands, I can tell you how to do that, too (it's not in the pattern).

Oh yeah, the store said someone in New Jersey has already called to place an order.  MonkeyThumb, that you?  I know how you preggos need what you need when you need it.  LOL.

Joyous knitting!
