A shrug for Sarah
I finally finished this shrug. (Last August I bought the yarn, Berroco's Glace and the pattern, Black Purl's "Angelina". )
I cast on when Penny came to visit in March, because she was already knitting the same pattern and I knew I could get plenty of pointers from her. One piece of advice she gave me was not to put it down and ignore it for very long, because I'd probably forget what I was doing and where I was in the pattern. So I knit the back pretty quickly. In May I worked on the front sides. In June I did the sleeves. Last week I seamed it.
And on Thursday night while watching Fantastic Four and listening to Mike Nelson and Kevin Murphy's RiffTrax for the movie, I finished the band for the edge. Now it's ready for Sarah to wear.
(And the RiffTrax seem to be a great substitute for MST3K - Steve and I plan to watch The Matrix with The Matrix RiffTrax tonight.)
