Cool!  Grin

I think that I will begin it this weekend.  I have a train ride ahead of me--2 hours there, 2 hours back--and it will definitely help me pass the time.

What yarn are you using?

I'm not positive but I think I'l use the Red Heart undyed lot in the brightest yellow I can find. My town is SEVERELY limited in yarn selection (just a few colors at Wal-Mart and that is it) so I use what I can. I don't have any yellow clothes and thought that a bright yellow shrug would be great for spring. Sorta like a baby chick or something. This will be my first crochet along and I'm so excited.

HAPPY CROCHETING!

Okay, I'm in on this shrug CAL.  I can't resist any longer  Roll Eyes.
I'm gonna be doing the one that pfirsch and cherryberry are doing; the cocoon sweater.  I've already begun.  I had a ton of Caron's Simply Soft in "bone" so I'm using that.  Nice and neutral.

I finally started mine and it's going fairly quickly.  I know that if I use Light & Lofty again, a smaller hook would work better.  I'm using an N and it's making the work too holey for my taste, but I don't want to undo what I've already done.

Oh, if you use the formula for the cocoon sweater, remember that the measurement is of your back is all that you need.  Measuring from wrist to wrist makes the shrug extremely loose.  and the length of the back depends on how big your arms are and how far you want the shrug to fall down your back.  I'm making the back 14" to have enough ease in the upperarms but to keep them fairly fitted.

How are everybody else's shrugs coming along?

I put my shrug aside, but I think I will pick it back up again.  I might just have enough yarn to finish it.  If not, I can always call my mama to send me another skein.

It's really warm even though there are holes between the stitches.

I finally finished mine, too!  I should have been done sooner, but oh well.  It's done now.

I have a question:  Are y'all going to put any kind of collar or edging on your shrugs?

Right now, I feel like something is missing, but I'm not sure what would work best.  If somebody had some shell-type edgings that they could suggest, that would be great.

I will post pictures this weekend.

What about the rest of y'all?  Anybody else finished?  kutrina, I am curious to see how yours turned out.
