V Knits

Circle Shrug FO



Yay! Here she is folks.

~Stats~

Pattern:
Twisted Float Shrug (Circle Shrug) from the Fall 2005 Vogue Knitting Magazine

Yarn:
Noro Kureyon (100% Wool) 100m/50g
Color 138 Dyelot A (Pinks, Orange, Olive) 9 skeins
Color 148 Dyelot A (Chocolate Pink) 3 skeins

Fleece Artist Goldielocks (56% Kid/24% Silk/20% Nylon)
(I'm guessing that Goldielocks also refers to the color, since there was no color/ dyelot/ weight/ yardage.

Needles:
5.5mm circular needles in 16"/40cm, 24"/60cm, 32"/80cm length

Pros:
Do I even have to say? Look at it! It looks really cool. The idea behind the pattern is different from the usual, which is what initially attracted me to this project. Also, the sleeves are worked onto the main piece from stitches held on waste yarn, so there was no sewing the pieces together. Working with Noro yarn is always nice too.

Cons:
As I mentioned in a previous post, the damnable twisted float stitch leads to tangle and frustration. But I sucked it up. I shouldn't whine so much. Hee hee.
