Finished the Shrug +++

Just finished the one-ball Giant Skein shrug. It measures 40" around and actually took LESS than one ball. I'm working on writing up the pattern right now (also working on a Michelob Ultra). Also finished a Trio knit tote. I have made these before, but this time, I am going to put a lining in it. Maybe later tonight. Also have a neat little mitered-square hat (my own design, since I couldn't find one that was just right) started in Hand Painted Knitting Yarn's Tweed Thick & Thin, as well as a RED felt hat in Cascade 220. I am not discussing all my other unfinished projects. I am sure they will all get done one day soon. I have about 3 or 4 more in my brain, just about to pop out and get onto the needles. Finish 2, start 4, right?


  1. I can't wait until you get this pattern out. Heidi, I love it. I would want to make it longer, to cover my tummy!!! Is the yarn a worsted or lighter?
    I have got to get my things photographed so I can post them!! Man, I wish I could retire.

  2. Heidi,
    I'm Mitsie Whitley, the anonymouns person above. I don't know how to get it to show who I am. Sorry!

  3. Because it is knitted from the top down, you are free to make the body & sleeves as long as you want! I was just trying to get a whole garment out of one ball of this particular yarn. This is a great pattern to use up odds & ends, and I was working with a DK weight yarn, on a #8 needle. The yarns I used included 12 different varieties, including one with a little sparkle. It is very nice!
