Shrug Off

Last night I finished the body of the twisted float shrug. Here it is straight off the needles. There is a bit of a line where the pattern & colour changes occur on each round. I hope it will not be noticeable after a press with the iron and when wearing it. I will have to be careful of this when picking up for the sleeves.

I have heard from my swap partner in the International Tote Exchange. The pattern I have chosen is Nicki Epstein’s Wisteria Bag in Jo Sharp DK pure wool. My first thought was that it would be a bit (lot) over the top but I have had encouraging comments from some other swappers so I will go with the Wisteria.
