Ribbed shrug!



Another FO for January:-) This time the Ribbed shrug form issue 3 of Yarn Forward magazine!
I used Rowan Plaid rather than chunky print as suggested by the pattern, but only as I had the plaid in stash. Its nice yarn, very snuggly and warm:-) I dropped down to 8mm and 6mm needles to allow for the differance in yarn, the tension of the Plaid and the chunky print are the same, but on differing needle sizes.

Mrs J, from the blog On the Hill awarded me an award today!!!How exciting:-)The "you make my day" award is for the blogs you read daily, and the idea is to then go on and award to the 10 blogs that you read daily yourself. i have a fair few blogs that I follow, but only certain ones that I read properly everytime they are updated, even if I don't always comment! so I would like to give the award to the following bloggers, (the button is in my sidebar)
Piglottie
Auntie Noo
Clarabelle who has already received the award but I LOVE her blog and she always makes me chuckle!!!!!!
Gilraen who has amazing stash piccies on a friday!
Queen of the froggers
Sarah
Jane who designs amazing socks!!!!!

I'm onto the second monkey sock, I may finish before next friday too I think:-) And have been continuing on with the bergere jumper, I think I should finish that off within the next couple of months as its my inbetween project WIP:-)

The weather here has been so horrid for the past couple of days! Sooooo windy, I hate it when you lie in bed and hear the wind rushing underneath all the roof tiles, not nice at all! We've had two tiles blow off altogether, and a few whic are now loose, just hoping we don't start with rain, cos none of the roofers will replace the tiles until th wind has settled....... Don't really fancy the prospect of the roof ceiling plus loads of water falling in whilst I'm in bed!!!!!
I'm working nights again tonight, but this time its overtime....... not that I relish the prospect of going in to work on a saturday night, BUT.... the extra money should pay our holiday deposit. I'm thinking Spain, probably in September when the schools have gone back. After my burning last year in Tunisia, I'm a little loathe to go in August incase its too hot!

Thank you kindly for the award, AQ! You're too nice!

The Ribbed shrug is really cute and suits you so well; and I also meant to comment on Frances, which I think is a beautiful colour and fit (despite your reservations!), and is also one of my middle names.

Hope you have a nice quiet shift tonight!

I was going to say something nice about the shrug anyway but now it's the best darn shrug I ever did see!! I'm a big fan of the Rowan Plaid.
