finally we got around to take some pictures of my latest finished knitted garment (I also finished sewing the dresses for the twins but no pictures of them yet. They will wear the dresses on christmas, so I will take pictures then. It's just too much hassle to dress them in the dresses just for taking pictures. Plus I need DH to hold the twins then...)
So here it is (please note, that I managed to get a new hair cut and dyed my hair. I'm pretty proud of that :))
(and yes, I did gain a bit of weight. I blame it on the meds I'm taking that I crave sweets all the time.... but others gained like 15kg in 2 weeks. I gained 3 in 5 months...)
Here's also the back. My husband does obviously not notice if the collar is wonky, when he takes pictures... go figure...)
Pattern: Textured circle shrug by Stephanie Japel
It's available for free at the lion brand homepage, you just have to sign up for it. There's also an archived KAL, which helped me a lot since there were quiet a few bits in the pattern that I did not get
Yarn: Zitron Nimbus. The yarn is a single spun yarn and it already pills. It also has developed a felted look just by knitting with it. I don't think I will use this yarn again..
I lengthend the sleeves a bit but that is all I changed intentionally. I ran out of yarn after fewer rows of seed stitch but the collar is still wide enough IMHO.
Overall I really like the shrug and I can recommend the pattern, if you use the KAL archives :)
