Ok, I have tried on the red shrug I knitted last week and I'm not so much in love with it as I thought. I think it is a sign, too, that when I went to take a picture of it to share my misery with y'all, my camera was dead as a doornail. Oh well, no red thing for you. I am still slogging along on my Mystery Stole but have set it aside for a bit as I'm not in a lace mood right now. I want something with stitches I don't have to think too much about (i.e. garter or stockinette). This is a cute shruggy thingy from the newest Mag Knits that I may attempt in the near future when the "I need to complete something NOW!" bug bites again. It has really interesting construction and is just a cute little "extra" for when you need to put something over bare shoulders, should it EVER get cool enough to need such a thing again. I am almost finished with my Jitterbug socks (an aside-when I typed that at first, I typed "jitterbut" and then that had me laughing for a good few minutes-I'm easily amused...) finally and should have pictures of the pair when I get my batteries re-charged for the camera. I am also getting ready to begin a stealth birthday gift from the pages of Mason Dixon Knitting and it is knit with linen which I've yet to knit with so I am excited about that. I won't say more because the intended recipient just may be lurking about (yeah, Mom, I'm talking to YOU!) but it is available in both a chevron and squares pattern for those of you who have the book and want to know what I mean! Tell me, what's your favorite quick knit for when you need a "finished product" fix?
