    I'm loving this shrug. After these pics were taken, I seamed the sleeves a bit smaller. They were showing too much skin:) I already have a red one on the needles!

    Wow, that's really cute! You did a great job! :D I really like how the sleeves are long and a little bit loose, they look almost like they flare out a bit.

    where did you get the pattern? how hard was it? How long did it take?

    (I want to make that for my next project depending on how hard and long it takes)

    that's where the pattern is..
    It was VERY easy but my eyes started glazing over towards the end LOL
    It took me about a week to make it. I'm hoping the next one goes faster. I'm going to switch to size 9 needles and make the small instead of the medium.

    You can see in the pic what I mean about too much skin showing. The pattern said to seam 19 inches up the sleeves but I ended up going about 26 inches. I was in a knitting shop tonight and after I walked by these little old ladies said that my sweater didn't look like it would keep me very warm LOL
