A new shrug called “A TOUCH OF PURPLE”

And so another project has just got off my hook yesterday… and just love how I did this one, this is my 3rd time I did this shrug, and maybe you can say I know my way around now.. Winking smile    As I get to make it fit for my teenage daughter.


Pattern Source:A Touch of Purple by Mimi Alelis
Materials used: Cannon Multicolor - violet [photo]
Needle size: 2.50mm
Project started: 03.10.2012
Project finished: 11.10.2012
Garment Size:  32"

Modification made on this one:
    • used 2.50mm needle and follow the pattern for size 32”
    • I didn’t do all 94 rows until I close the other end for the arms, I only go until I reach somewhere between 80-84 rows, then connect both ends.

Saturday Blues

Was feeling a bit low in the morning when I woke at 4:45 am, must be due to lack of sleep, and feeling so tired the entire week.  So many activities done and planned.

So to cheer me, I went to look for some inspiring project, and dream and wishful thinking that I will be able to do all those lovely tops, cheery afghans and cutesy hats…then I remember I have this bolero I started the other day… it’s a 3rd time I did this bolero, using Mimi’s pattern.

This pattern starts from one sleeve and ends at the other sleeves, and I just finished the first sleeve, and now on few rows of the back… I used Cannon size 8 cotton thread – variegated violet.

Don’t you just love the colour? I have other variegated ones that can’t wait to show them to you guys. I will try to show them to you on my next post. Smile

Some unfinished worked… 3x16.. need 19x16 more

And still more projects to finish, as usual when I’m done with one, there is bound to have a new project cast-on.

I will continue where I left off on the granny squares which I started last September, but didn’t get to do more than what I thought I can finish got busy with Zenssy Top.  And then got sick for a week and half, and then had to rip the Zenssy Top 4x!

So here it is in not yet it’s full glory… Summer Garden Granny Squares (SGGS) Open-mouthed smile, and showing you the yarns used for this project.
