calypso lace shrug



I meant to write about this sooner but I never got around to blocking it, I just got it blocked and the ends weaved in so here it is!
I used some pretty knit picks yarn for this that I've been saving for ever because I had only one skein and was afraid to use it.
But I got over my scaredness and used it to make this.The pattern is from the sock yarn edition of One skein wonders. The pattern was pretty easy to follow except for one mistake in the number of stiches for the lace pattern. The only thing I changed was the pattern had you put two buttons so you could button it up but I thought it looked better open so I left those off. It took me about five days to knit but I wasn't knitting more than a hour a day.
