I made a shawl for my cousins wedding about 7 years ago, and it was a terrible yarn that kept breaking as I knit, it was too square and too rough. I wore it with pride though!
But lately I wanted to wear a shrug, but I wasn’t happy with any pattern, and with how busy I am with orders, I knew I didn’t have the time to commit. Then I recalled my old shawl, and saw a pattern for a shrug! Bingo
I picked up the sides, knit along a circular knitting needle with a soft creamy color, and two days later I had a shrug! Comfy and it came up exactly as I hoped!
