Knitting a WIP from 2006

In September of 2006, fell in love with the Fisherman Shrug pattern on the Lion Brand Yarn website and bought the five skeins of Wool-Ease Thick and Quick. Finished knitting the pieces. In October 2006,  I received a corrected pattern for this shrug. It was full of errata, I had to frog it. Instead, I set it aside because I was bummed that all that knitting was done for naught.

In 2014 my husband of 33 years passed away.  I had to move to the Mojave Desert in 2015. While unpacking, I found my shrug. On August 11, 2017 I frogged it and cast on.

Today I finished the back and am half way through the first sleeve. God willing and the creek don’t rise,  I’ll finish it.

Happy knitting.

Watched “Flame and Fiber Podcast – Spirit of Rhinebeck KAL – episode 35” on YouTube

Barbara’s podcast is fun to watch. This episode is full of crafty goodness.

The silk Self Gris she knitted is perfectly beautiful 💖

The toddler’s Wallaby cardigan is a quick charity knit. The eyelet detail makes it a bit fancy.

Hope you have a great time watching this episode.
