The yarn shop by my home had a huge moving sale so I got this great Self-striping Italian Mohair yarn for 75% off. I used it to make this slouchy shrug by Diane Langan. I think that if I had it to do over I might do the collar and cuffs differently, but it's my first wearable so I'm pretty happy.

Very pretty! It looks great and warm. How did you make the cuffs? They look knit.

They are actually crocheted using the back loop only.

Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone.

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.
