Yay!  I just finished up and wove in the ends.  Its not a perfect fit for me, but then it isn't for me!  I'll probably post a pic tomorrow, because right now I am in jammys.....

I hope I'm not repeating a question that someone has already asked, but does anyone know how to "try on" the shrug while knitting?  I want to make sure it isn't going to be huge, and I also want to make sure it won't be too long and not "shruggish" enough.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

Here's mine... I used Caron Simply Soft.  I made the ribbed section about 7 inches.  I don't know how much I'll be wearing it.  I don't feel like it's that flattering on me right now but maybe if I lose that weight I've been wanting to... hahaha!

OMG.... will the rows and rows of mock-rib EVER end? *cry*

I've just about reached the half way point, and I feel like I'm going to lose it! SO much of the same thing!

I'll be sure to post pictures of my progress soon...

I know how you feel. When it's an easy stitch, or a stitch that repeats over and over again, it feels like it takes forever. You can do it! Smiley

Some people used stockinette instead of the mock rib. Still rows and rows of it, but it's more mindless so you can watch a movie/tv and not have to pay attention to it so closely.

I actually wish I did my shrug using the Stocking st... it would have made it a bit less bulky.

A question about this  working on it now, and I think I may add a hood. I have limited experience with knitting hooded garments (my first was another hooded shrug, created by someone and posted on this site).
I have a construction question: I've done the bottom ribbing. I'm now working on the body of the shrug, but in a mesh lace pattern.  Should I do the top ribbing and pick up stitches, or bind off, then pick up stitches for the hood?

I'm not sure...I'm thinking that if I do the top ribbing, bind off, then pick up stitches for the hood, the front will be too bulky. But maybe not. It may make a more relaxed hood, and a more spread-out collar. With the construction of this shrug, not making ribbing on the top probably won't facilitate the overall construction of the shrug.

Sorry for the thinking-out-loud. It's how I figure things out. Now, off to sketch this out (the other way I figure things out  Smiley.
