Spring is finally here. The breezes are warmer, the flowers are out...and we are all feeling like it's darn tootin time. Everything is soo photogenic, and I couldn't resist taking a bunch of photos to share with you all.

learning to pick up stitches right

Refreshing my memory of the "correct technique" for picking up stitches along the edges of the stockinette.

Trillions of hours later: picking up the 230 stitches to garter around the shrug.

The side of the shrug.

The back of the shrug, and why I am going to make version 2. The pattern and picot edging will stay, but it will be smaller lengthwise and widthwise and the garter boarder will be knit simultaneously with the lace. The yarn in the current shrug is great (I would use it again for the Abriana cardi), but who can resist a cashmere blend?
