The Shrug

So, awhile ago I posted about two shrugs that were very similar. Stefanie asked her publisher about it, and if you scroll down on my post, you can see her comment. Basically, the shrugs had enough differences that no one coulde be accused of copying. I still think it shows a lack of ideas on CosmicPluto‘s part.

But the reason I noticed was that I knit Stefanie’s shrug over winter break. I used two skeins Berroco Ultra Alpaca, and size 5 (3.75) 24″ circulars all the way (even thought the pattern has you go down two needle sizes for the ribbing).  I used colors 6285 (the blueish) and I think the other one must have be 6279, although I’m not sure. (The yarn was in the clearence basket of my LYS. I love Ultra Alpaca, so I couldn’t pass it up).

Anyway…

This was a fun and easy knit I’d wanted to make for awhile but was waiting for the right yarn to come along.  I’ll definitely be making it again!
