First let me tell you that Max was touched by all your kind comments. He is very happy that little fluff ball is home where he belongs. Now he can rest out by the pool without worrying about being sniffed.
Do you remember the second Cardi Shrug? Well here it is all nice and , well for lack of a better word, blocked. I love the color and I think it will be very fun to wear when it is not 93 degrees with 90% humidity.
As you know I become obsessed with one pattern and knit or crochet it many, many times. Maybe I do have a bit of obsessive compulsiveness in me, and it comes out when I play with yarn.
So I made Cardi Shrug number three. But as I was knitting away, minding my own business the Crochet Fairy popped by and simply said, "Hey, what about me? We have not spent much time together lately!" I tried to remind her of the crochet ripple washcloth madness, the two major vest projects, but apparently it wasn't enough.
So I decided to add a bit of granny fun to the Cardi to break up the knitting. I love how it looks. Don't ask me how I did it, I don't know. Don't ask me about the math, or the planning, I winged it all. But you can ask me about these pathetic pictures that do not do the Shrug justice. It is so humid outside today that I could not wipe the lens off fast enough to take the picture before it clouded up again.
Remember you can find this free pattern on Ravelry, it is the Cardi Shrug by Jennifer L. Jones. It is very easy to adapt. Add more stitches to the arms and back until you have the right number for you. I have added about 10 stitches to each arm and the back to make the right fit for me. Easy Peasy.
Have a great day.
