FO: Two toned shrug

Pattern: Two toned shrug from Fitted Knits

Size: 14″

Yarn: Malabrigo merino in purple mystery, 1.5 skeins

Needles: US 7 and 4

Notes: It may have been quick and easy, and I love the finished shrug, but I didn’t find myself enjoying the process. I had to knit the Malabrigo on size 7s for the body and 4s for the ribbing because of my loose gauge, and I really didn’t enjoy that. The ribbed edging seemed to go on forever as well. But having said that, I love the color, and I love how soft the yarn is. It will be nice for cool evenings over dresses and camisoles. I made the size 14 instead of the 13 because my measurement was exactly 14″ and I had seen a few other people complain that the 13 was too tight. I love the results – it fits perfectly! The ribbing is not wonky the way it looks in that photo. You all know what this shrug looks like!

Also note the Lego Starship Enterprise sitting on our sideboard. Marc made it for me and I *heart* it!
