Last night I came across this beautifully knit shrug made by Worsted Knit. It's a pattern from Fitted Knits, which I'm sorely tempted to purchase right now!
Here's what she had to say about the results:
Now, orange and turqoise is not the kind of combination I'd wear every day, so I was a bit suspicious, but then I thought that something really eccentric in my closet is not so bad, either! So I cast on, knit, cast off and was very happy with the results.
