I made this for one of my swap partners in the Make-a-Friend Swap.
It is the Moth Wings Shrug by Mimi Alelis from the Summer 2010 Edition of Interweave Crochet.
I used a shiny looking pretty green thread I got from Hobby Lobby. The color in the picture is pretty close and the last photo you can see some of the shiny-ness of the thread. I think I used a size 5 because I couldn't find my other hooks.

Here it is:
The Front (don't mind the pins)



The back: here you can see some of the lopsided motifs, they were an accident.



And the sleeve. You can also see a close up of the motif and the shiny thread.



Thanks for looking! I hope to make one for myself soon! ^_^

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

This is very pretty, and I too love the colour with its slight sparkle. I hope your friend enjoys it too.
