Since You Asked So Nicely...

Karen wearing shruggles OK, I set up the tripod and self-timer to take a shot at, well, myself. Wearing the shrug that started in my head and ended up on my back. No, there's no pattern as yet, but a heart-felt thank you to those of you who've asked for one. Give me some time to work one out.

And since Miss Grumperina made this sudden noteriety possible, I think she should have a crack at being the first test knitter if she thinks this little item might work for her (sound of gauntlet being laid gently down).

The only reason I made this was to have something to wear to the Stitches Midwest convention. Turns out it was a big hit. Even as I stood in line to buy my lunch, people would come up to me and ask about the shrug and where they could find the pattern.

This all totally blows me away. All I could do is smile sheepishly and say thanks.

Looks beautiful on you! You're right, it doesn't frame the girls - it's the sleeves, and the angle of the shrug across your shoulders. I would love to be the first test-knitter (I just replied to your e-mail, too)!

I am just amazed at how different the colours could be in different shots! I thought it was green ... and now the pic today shows it to be blue! But no matter what colour, it is still beautiful! Test knitter? Does that mean you are going to publish the pattern? Yay!

It is very sweet looking. It makes you look delicate. I love how it combines with other colors. Can't wait to try your pattern.

Yes, grumperina pointed me in this direction, and yes, it's a beautiful shrug. I *love* the vintage flare of the rosettes around the neckline. I'd love to give your shrug a little try...

The shrug looked great on the model, but even better on a person. This is awesome and I would love to buy the pattern when you've got it all figured out. So beautiful!
