More progress


A progress shot, as promised. I think the chocolate brown contrast yarn looks much better than the more insipid mustard shade that I originally chose.


But life is too short, so I decided not to start from scratch. I'll use the mustard again for the sleeves. That way I hope it will look like a design feature rather than a mistake ;-)

I have marked the armholes with waste yarn. I'll pick up this project again when my hangover has cleared from the New Year festivities.
Have a good one! I'll be back in 2007!

Season's greetings to everyone!

I thought I'd post some progress pictures of my shrug:

I love the colours and the twisted effect. But I can't stand the way the yarn gets into such a tangle. I have wound the contrast 'B' yarn into smaller bobbins, which makes life a little easier!

I must admit that I have been working on xmas knitting much more diligently than I have been knitting the shrug. After the holidays, I plan to get back into gear.

Hello from England!

Hi there from London!
I have just started my Twisted Circle shrug. I'm using Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted, but my contrast colour is mustard and too light.

So I've forced myself to go to my LYS and buy some darker shades to give it more contrast. I'll post pictures of my progress soon!

Best wishes
