Yarny goodness and a Turtleneck Shrug progress report
I got the yarn in for my Lady Eleanor and Vintage Velvet scarves (which I'll be working on once I finish my Turtleneck Shrug)! I'm happier with this shade of yarn for my Eleanor than the one I had originally, but I'm still not thrilled with the color balance of a few of the skeins (very little light light lilac and more brown and mauve), but it'll do. I can always make another one with yarn that I personally pick out at my LYS (they didn't have any of the shades I was interested in for this one, hence buying it online and getting the luck of the draw).
As for my Turtleneck Shrug, I'll be done with the second sleeve within the hour and then I'm going to rip the other sleeve back a bit and redo the top (not happy with the color balance in the second skein I used originally, so I'll be using the same skein as I did for this sleeve) and I should be done within a week or so at the latest. :)
It's turning out beautifully and I have to say it's one of the easiest projects I've ever done but at the same time very gratifying in terms of the look of the final product.
