Teva's Turtleneck Shrug

First of all, I want to tell all of your Scarf Stylers that you are doing an awesome job. Everytime I check in here I expand the list of scarves I want to knit from this book. Lady Eleanor. Backyard Leaves. Forbes Forest. Wow.

I have my first finished object to contribute: Teva Durham's Turtleneck Shrug.

Shrug in full effect

I knit it with three skeins of Cascade 220 in color #9339, which is blue with flecks of green. It is the perfect San Francisco accessory, as it provides a little extra warmth on breezy days without being too hot. Like Karen said earlier, it really extends your t-shirt wardrobe. Despite the skepticism I heard while making it, I have received several compliments. I also want to say that Teva is a great designer. I made another of her patterns, the Leaf Cravat, and was amazed by how the design worked out. I can't wait for her book to come out later this spring.

Knit on,

Nicole/Big Sister
