Just Finished Knitting Project


My New Year Day post
was the beginning of this project.
Today it was finished!

It's a SHRUG.
If you're unfamiliar with the term,
a shrug is a short, open front jacket,
somewhat like a bolero.
My shrug is an interesting shape because
it can be worn in two ways.
The first two pictures show it with the seams on the shoulders,
creating a shorter version.



If you wear it turned upside down,
you get a longer length and fuller sleeves.
Interesting...


Side view of my shrug worn with
the seams at the bottom.


I knitted the shrug in my own boutique yarn
FUSION.





I've named it FUSION because it's a blending
of 15-20 different yarns,
creating a unique texture and colorway.



Here's the project on the needles.



I had a bit of FUSION left over,
so I knitted a scarf too!



I love this colorway.
I call it "Autumn."
Last, but not least, I've made another
colorway of FUSION.
I think I'll call this one "Plum Pudding!"

This week I'm linking with

Love the shrug and scarf. You are so talented. It would take me a year to do just a sleeve. lol

Hi
I just love your shrug!! In the 50's a shrug was very popular. I'm starting a knitting class next week and I would love to have the pattern.
Thank for sharing.

I'm with everyone else.. this is beautiful. Saw it yesterday when I visited here and I've been thinking about it every since. If the pattern is not a secret I'd love to know where I can find it. Also, you totally outdid yourself with your yarn creation. Very, very yummy!

Do you make any shrugs for sale? And
if so, what do you charge? Your work
is beautiful. I want to knit but can't
seem to "get" it yet.
