2011 - Item 8


Pattern:  Leafy Shrug by Stitchymama (Katherine Oxlade Knack)
Yarn:  Panda Magnum Soft, 1 ball (black)
Needles:  5mm and 4.5mm for the edging

Finally Isabelle put this on so I could photograph it, but judging by the top photo I should have waited until it was cooler so she wasnt so annoyed.  I loved how this turned out and it was so quick and easy to knit.  Perfect for the cooler nights of summer.  The only change I made was to cast on 44 sts for each sleeve and knit 8 rows in K2, P2 instead of garter stitch.  Then I picked up sts for the bands and just knit the same for 8 rows and cast off.  I think it looks great and I have been told not to knit one for her cousin because she wants something nice just for herself.  I guess I should take that as a compliment!

Yes you should! Isabelle reminds me so much of Hedera - I am totally forbidden to make something Hedera likes (but hers, ofcourse).
And your daughter is growing, my friend! I can remember her from you blog's beginnings!
