This shrug's made for my mum in mind, in time for her birthday. In MARCH. I know. Call me paranoid, but I think if you realize what kind of speed I have, the possibility of me finishing gifts in time ranges from 0% to 100%.
The pattern was really easy to remember but I had a problem at the end. Because it tells me to 'BO loosely' (and it didn't say CO loosely), I did exactly as it said. And then I ended up with a nice snug sleeve and a loose, squarish one on the other side. Everyone also knows what it's like to rip mohair. But I had to do it; the difference was too great to be forgiveable.
Reading-in-Bed Shawl from Interweave Knits Spring 2007 in Sublime's Mohair blend with 5.5mm Addi Turbos.
Anyways I've used much less yarn than expected so now i've got quite a bit left. I thought I'd make myself another shrug but today I was inspired by MLC's wisp... so... hint hint.
More on wips and spinning progress tomorrow.
