Well, I had some quiet time to work on my shrug in the past few days. It took me just under 2 hours to finish the edging.
Then, I tried it on...too tight. 30 seconds to frog 2 hours worth of work. Ugh!
In the meantime, I wanted to hit my goal to have a finished object by the end of January - since the shrug wasn't cooperating, I picked a leftover UFO from 2010. I used an online video to learn how to do a 3 needle bind off to connect the shoulder straps to the body and off I went.
I present my Rowan Summer Tweed Frock Camisole:
Frock Camisole from Interweave Knits Spring 2008
Yarn: Summer Tweed by Rowan
Purchased at: WEBS
Needles: Knit Picks Harmony Needles US 7 Circulars
I do plan on wearing a white shirt underneath it, so I did not do any modifications.
Hopefully next time I can share a completed shrug!
