Woo! I made this today!

I am working on a ribbed black scarf currently, but it’s taking a long time, so I took a break from it today to make a shrug!  Since it’s a little cold here now I am trying to make some wool stuff to keep warm, and the shrug turned out really nicely.  I used a different kind of yarn, some really nice purple yarn, and it looks great!  It used size 50 knitting needles, which make me look like a 3 year old knitting a shrug, but the enormous needles made it a lot easier and faster.  I think it took me 4 or so hours to make, and it’s basically a square folded over and stitched, but I really like it.  In fact, I think I am going to wear it to my interview tomorrow!  Woo!

    Look at you being all productive with the crocheting? And our house, it is pronounced “crotch-it-ing.” Because we’re nine.

    That sounds so cool!!! I love it! Where did you get the pattern…sounds like a quick xmas/holiday gift and I’m so horribly behind I need something to do that is FAST. And I feel EXACTLY the same way using my 50 needles!!!

    Looks like it would be cool. My girlfriend is interested in learning to knit. Any pointers? Take a class? Learn from a book?

    Good luck on the interview, Miss.
