More Knitting Projects Finished in 2009 - Installment 2

Begun on October 18 and finished on November 11, this project is for our guild's Think Pink show to be held next month. I've named it Celebration of Life Shrug. Although the shrug design is my own, I followed Jane Thornley's stitches in her Paua Shell Topper. It is very warm and can be worn in 2 directions. One direction is longer in the back. It makes a nice shawl collar worn that way.

Very pretty-I like that it is feminine without frou-frou!

Thank you! Beautiful things on your blog as well! I will have to take another look and at your etsy shop as well. Isn't Jane Thornley's Ravelry group great?

I love your part of the country. We have dear friends who have a beach house at Topsail Island. It is an awesome experience to go there.
