It seems like I’ve been working on this shrug for ages but it is finally finished!
The neck ribbing was a killer – 225 stitches to pick up and then k3p2 ribbing increasing to p3. I managed to pick up 250 stitches to start with so did some k2togs to get it down to 225.
This is pre-blocking.
This frees me up to cast on for something else. I am deciding between the branching out for my mil, monkey socks with the gorgeous sea wool and a koolhaas hat. I wound the suri merino, basic merino and sea wool in to balls yesterday afternoon. They do look much prettier in the skein. The Suri merino is sooooo soft!
I wanted to see how the sea wool would look crocheted so I did a swatch.
I like it.
