Stick a fork in it ....


it's done!


You know, I hate that saying, but my shrug is all done! I finished it Wednesday night. (Late) Then, on a long car ride today, I wove the yarn ends in.

I look so tired and dorky in these pictures, but I guess that's how I just look. I never know what to do with my hands when I'm posing. I tried a catalog pose, but really looked goofy!

I used the one skein wonder shrug pattern, and added some sleeves knit in the round to it. I love, love, love it. Of course it's too hot to wear right now, but you know I'm not complaining!

One more UFO down. Countless others to go.

My yarn shipped from knitpicks on Friday, so as soon as it gets here, I am starting my shawl! I have been trying out the chart on some left over wool, and I think it's going to be so fun to knit. We'll see how many mistakes I make while knitting with the girls on Wednesdays. I get to chatting, and you know how that goes.

Carrie has a progress photo of a really pretty shawl another knitter is doing for our Summer Shawl Along. I wonder if she'll have to start another blog for all of us. I don't know how many people she has enticed into knitting encourage to knit shawls.

I'll post all of the stats on my FO Blog, along with the hat and bootie set soon!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I sure am! Knit On!

You don't look dorky! You and the shrug look great! And the only person I ever heard use the expression, "Put a fork in it," was a sailor with the Merchant Marines. I was very weirded out when I saw your title - didn't know you knew that expression =) Clearly, I need to get out more. I can't wait to see how you work on the shawl. It looks difficult!

Cool shrug. It looks much better on you than it does on the bushes.

the shrug looks cool! I had been eyeing that pattern myself. I love that you added sleeves to yours!
