Latest progress on the new improved "I do" shrug. Now I know that this bears a striking resemblance to the last picture I showed you of the work in progress BUT, (and this is a bigger but than my own) the last incarnation has been frogged and this is a wholly NEW version.
The original seemed to be too tight around my upper arm (truck drivers muscles I assure you. Flab? no way!) But I had hated casting on and starting off as the needles I was using were as blunt as an EXTREMELY blunt thing. So whilst at Woolfest I purchased some bamboo DPNs with nice pointy points and a bamboo circular (ditto) in the right size and I started again.
I'm much happier with the progress I'm making now, and the needles are terrific (Susannes's Bambus).
I've also finished another teeny tiny felted tote from the Kureyon I got at Coldspring Mill. I may give it as a prize to the Friends of Beaumont Park as they've sent a flyer round asking for stuff for their gala day at the end of the month. I live near to the park and it's rather lovely and The Friends raise money towards restoring it to it's former glory.
Well, I say I've finished it. Obviously I haven't put the button or the handle on yet!!!
