*shrug*

Hey Stylers!

I am a latecomer to this knit-along and to the book. Although I had coveted it for many months, I didn't managed to pick it up until a few weeks ago. In order to catch-up I immediately started in on Teva Durham's Turtleneck Shrug in a lovely shade of blue-green Cascade 220. I am taking a brief break to work on a baby sweater, but here is what I have so far:



I am already in love with this interesting take on a scarf and can't wait to wear it.

I also just got some laceweight yarn from Knitpicks to start Ene's Scarf for my grandma. Has anyone knit this? I would love any advice you might have. Everyone's scarves look amazing! I love visiting this blog.

Knit on!

    Ooh-- your shrug looks great. I love the color. I'm thinking of doing one in yellow cascade 220-- do you think the cascade is soft enough?

    I can't wait to see your shrug finished. I have that on my list of things to make, but it might not happen this winter. That yarn color is lovely!

    Cascade can be a little rought, but I recently bought some Kookabura wool wash. It has lanolin in it and puportedly softens up wool by restoring the lanolin. I will report back when it is finished.
