Huhwhat?
« on: January 30, 2006 08:42:11 PM »

I've been working on this a while. What do you think?

                 
I borrowed healthily from the Craftster Circular Shrug, making it a little longer and wider to cover my wobbly bits. I also swapped out the stitches. More details and pix on my blog.

This is so beautiful! Gorgeous!

... and the best take on the circular shrug pattern I have seen... you should really post it on that thread too so everyone can ooh and ahh over it, which is only its due.

You wanna pass that red wine over here? mmmhmmm.

Great job! I love it. I've been thinking to knit a lace version too. Thanks for your great inspiration.

Thanks for all the great comments!  Grin I am really happy with the way it turned out! I did go ahead and cross post on the Circular Shrug thread, too. The original posters did such a fantastic job figuring out this pattern, don't you think?

coulorsknits, you can swap out the stitches on this pattern so easily, because you are basically knitting a rectangle so it lends itself easily to almost any stitch. About halfway through this, I was thinking about doing one with an eyelet pattern. I would love to see other lace versions, if anybody knits them!

Emms, (fills another glass) Cheers, baby!
