New Yarn and Shrug Pattern
I got my yarn from Elann today, 3 balls of Peruvian Highland wool in Deep Sea Blue, and 3 balls of Highland Donegal in Cognac. I love the Highland Donegal; it's 100%, single ply worsted weight with little tweedie flecks and it feels so nice! I started this little shrug from CrochetMe in the smallest size.
http://www.crochetme.com/patterns/maui-shrug I must be crocheting too tight because I had to switch over to a size I hook to get the right gauge. I really think it will be pretty when it's done and it should go pretty fast because it's so open and lacy. I think I might make the pineapple scarf again in the blue; or maybe a hat and fingerless gloves. I haven't decided yet. I really like these fingerless gloves; again from CrochetMe: http://crochetme.com/patterns/crochet-openwork-handwarmers
I have a granny hat beanie hat pattern somewhere that would look really good with them.
