All finished!

I finally finished my Twisted Float yesterday.

I started it in November 2006 and was so determined to wear it before I give birth at the end of March that I worked on it practically al through Christmas Day. I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Gold Hill. The solid shades of chocolate and mulberry were Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran.

The collar and cuffs were made from Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Astrakhan. I tried a variegated mohair yarn that had been custom-dyed to match the body but it didn't look right.

Although I'm delighted with the shrug I have no intention of knitting another one. Twisting and untwisting the yarns for the body was a PITA and they would felt together sometimes, too.
