My favorite shrug...

... at least for now

being that it's my only one. I finished it LATE last night. I just couldn't put the needles down with being only a few inches away from finishing the last sleeve. I am so loving this shrug. It's warm, cozy and wonderful. I might have to make another one sometime in the future in a different color. The girls now think that they need one for themselves. We'll see.

I have to thank my photographer for the pictures so that I could show you what the shrug looks like. It was a wonderful day out with the sun finally shining, after so many days of gray, dark clouds just hanging over everything. The blue sky was beautiful to look at.

Off to finish my most favorite "household" thing, laundry. Yeah. At least it's just waiting to be put away. No one likes helping with this job. I never have problems getting volunteers to help with other things but just ask to get help folding the clothes and putting them up and it's like roaches scattering when a light is flipped on. That's teamwork I tell ya.

I must hurry. I'm getting the eye and was asked if I was going to start on the dead fish hat tonight. I had to order yarn for that being that someone had to have particular colors for the hat. I think that someone is getting obsessed with cool looking hats that he can wear to work. I'm going to have to keep an eye on him. Note to self: don't look up patterns on ravelry when a certain someone is around. He starts to see things that he likes also which just makes my project list longer. :)

Here's to a great week. More sunshine in the forecast, more workout time, more yarn time. You knew yarn was not going to be left out. It's going to be great!


  1. Ohmygosh!

    I know what you mean about making things for everyone else,I am constantly making things for everyone else,that I hardly ever make anything for me,I only get the things that didnt turn out:)
