Fwd: Shrug it Off

The shrug in the photo is a free pattern named "Pretty in Misti Shrug" from jimmy beans wool. It is a very easy lace pattern that can be worked up in a matter of hours. This was made from a thick and thin spun yarn purchased at London Wul and hand dyed and spun by the owner Heidi. Heidi dyed it in multicolored oranges and yellows. It is very soft and just a joy to knit and wear.

This week's knit meeting at Read's was very entertaining. Deina had arrived back from her Mediterranean cruise all tanned up with some nice stories that we all enjoyed.

I managed to get to spinning on Thursday at London Wul and had a very nice time listening to Janet tell us of her 5 day weaving workshop that she took in Massachusetts. Her samples were lovely. After I drank my large 1/2 decaf coffee I apparently was quite entertaining.

Knit East is taking place September 30th to October 2nd. Check it out.

See you next Wednesday at Reads
