Short and Sweet
A very quick update today - to present this short and sweet shrug I made for Caroline's birthday (which is today!) I delivered it this morning and it looks fabulous on her.
It's Glint from Kim Hargreaves Nectar collection. I've become a bit of a Hargreaves groupie lately, this is my 4th project from her books in the past 6 months. Her patterns are stylish, well designed and generally well written.
This one is knit in Rowan Summer Tweed. The pattern called for 5 skeins for the small size, but I only used 4. The body is knit on 5mm needles, the edging on 4.5mm.
The colour is richer than in this picture - for no reason that makes sense to me I want to say it's velevety!
