Thanks for all of the nice comments on my Valentines! I had so much fun making the brunch. Especially as a vegetarian, it really is a great mealtime.
This is the Two Toned Shrug from Fitted Knits. I used Silver Moon Farm superwash worsted wool, and it has already stretched out enough to fit perfectly. I unraveled those pink cabled footies I made a few months ago to get the contrast yarn. I wore holes in them inside of a month, so I took it as a sign of a yarn-project mismatch. This yarn is beautifully dyed. I soaked the entire shrug in a vinegar-water bath before hand washing it, and I noticed minimal color washing off.
Spring is coming, and summer soon after that! The bright colors of this shrug are to remind me of the spring – the flowers, warm weather, new leaves and grass everywhere. This winter has been long and tiring. I am ready for warmer weather! Hmmm… this means I need to step on it and finish my winter knitting!
