this summer i worked at a place that had no television or other mindless distractions so i took up crafting. usually i'm a sewer but since i had no sewing machine with me i decided to knit. and so i knit some shrugs.  keep in mind that i had wanted a shrug long before the whole shrug craze....  so the first one i made for myself. its the first non-scarf project. the second onw was supposed to be for my sis, but i liked it so much that i'm making her another one.

enjoy:

i used lothruin's pattern that you can find on here. the yarns were both lion brand. the first is homespun in the color praire. the second is the bulky wool thick and quick something or other in the color wood. i like the way teh second one knit up. the first one was really loose for some reason. thanks

That looks great! I started a shrug for my tv project too! I think I'm actually even using that same color!

They look awesome!  I really like the second one.  It has a beautiful shape and reminds me of a sea shell..

i've worked with homespun before and i've noticed that it doesn't have any elasticity, so it can make your project come out kinda baggy.

Very cute!  I'll have to go search for that pattern now.

Nicely done! 

I spend every summer without tv, and although I turn into a pop-culture illiterate, I enjoy the amount of time I "find."

Do you think you could post the link to this pattern?  I know I've seen it, but you could find it way faster than I.
