fo: indifferent shrug

Pattern: two tone ribbed shrug by Stefanie Japel
Source: fitted knits
Yarn: red heart super saver in teal and blue sky organic cotton in natural (colour #81)
Needles: US Size 8 and 5
Started: March 10, 2008
Finished: May 23, 2008

this was pretty much a stashbuster and a timewaster. i was feeling sort of uninspired toward the end of second semester and used some acrylic to get started on this. i got the cotton for sale at the yarn basket— and had a skein and a half leftover from the freedom hat, but took forever to do the ribbing because my boye needlemasters are utter crap and i literally could not get myself to finish until i bought some addi turbos the other day at WEBS. once i had those, it finished really quickly. the sleeves are too big– i should have made the smallest size, but there’s no way i care about this enough to rip back and fix it. i’ll just say it’s supposed to be a baggy shrug. the only real modification i made was the addition of baby cables to the ribbing.

toodles!
