I think that winter is finally over, at least I've convinced myself will be warming up now that I've finished my shrug. I had to use that black box to hide the dorky look on my face, my husband is known for the awful pictures that he has taken of me.
I am so excited that I'm done(except for the horns and I need a little more practice before adding those), this is my first finished knitted item(I'm not counting washcloths and scarves). I feel like I've learned a lot - increasing, decreasing, the mattress stitch, picking up stitches and the kitchener stitch! I really am thankful that I found knittinghelp.com the videos really made the difference for me.BTW I used size 8 needles and Caron simply soft yarn and this pattern as inspiration.
