I made a crazy bet with my darling friend Patricia that I would finish this knit before she closed up her shop today. Well I didn't make it but I did make it before it turned into tomorrow!
Pattern: Anthropologie Inspired Capelet (or really as Patricia kept pointing out - shrug - because it has sleeves)
Yarn: Rowan Big Wool, 2 balls
Needles: US 13 circs
It was a Super Fast knit! However I'm not going to lie, I did go through a minor freak out because I really didn't think I was going to make it and in the end I just did 4 rounds of K1, P1 edging instead of the 5 rounds stated in the pattern.
I really love it on the reverse stockinette side. There is something about the purl bumps that makes this different from other shrugs I've made.
I also had a great excuse to get my fabulous brooch from out of my jewelry box. This gem was given to me by my girl Torry. She got it right here in Hoboken at a great store called Aaraa.
I'm off to the beach tomorrow so I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week! I'm sure I'll have another fun FO to show when I return!
