Sittin' Here Knittin' - Old one

Ramblings about Knitting and other important stuff

Monday, May 15, 2006


Before I left on my little trip I insisted on finishing up my Noro shrug so I could wear it to the wedding in case I got chilled. It's something that happens to me very frequently and I wanted to wear something cute rather than my standard grey fleece. In fact, I took it shopping with me to buy the little "wedding outfit". I wonder if the guy at anthropoligie noticed the knitting needles were still in it when I stuffed it in the bag with the skirt I wore...

Well, I wore it, but apparently got no pictures of it and the cute outfit so you'll have to make due with the shrug and what I wore to work today. The shrug is mega-cute either way.

Love, love, love this bugger. The pattern is from Noro 18. The picture in the book is horrible and if some folks I know hadn't already made one I wouldn't have even noticed it. The pattern book even says that the pattern for this isn't in there but trust me, it's in there. I thought the pattern was well written and very simple. It's a great one to practice cabling without a cable needle if you feel like giving that a whirl.

Of course, since I finished something I had to cast on for a few new things... I'll tell you about those later though. Have a great one!

That is sooo gorgeous! I saw Cynthia's last week ... I might need you to scan the pattern and send it my way, if possible (??) ... I don't know how much longer I can go on without making that. :) Way Cute.
