This generous gift is turning into my latest wip ... what I call my "Cherry Cupcake Summer Shrug".
Here she is, basking in the sun
Close up of the pattern. Simple Lace Shrug by Lisa Sisk @ This Is KnitYep I'm uncertain what exactly happened on Saturday evening. I had been KIP on the Metro, gaining progress and happy to be representin'. I picked it back up at home when I had time to myself, completed a few more rows, and stood back to view my handy work and .... bam!, a ladder unraveled right in front of my eyes! I let loose the movie epic "Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!" and did what I would to save a few loops on a safety pin. So, it's not "perfect", but it's mine.
Being me, I refused to frog back and rework it. With some thread and after blocking, I have hopes I can make it seem like not a single thing went awry.
The lesson? Yeah it's just yarn. But it's my yarn ;)
