Finally finished

 For personal reasons, my blogging has been a little lacklustre for the last couple of weeks, and I thought that  I would have to show you some works in progress, just to prove that I am actually doing things.  But then something miraculous happened.  I finished my solstice shrug for P's birthday.

 Modelled by a very helpful dolly.

The colour of this shrug was really difficult to photograph - its a fire engine red, and it makes the pattern quite difficult to see.

The pattern is available on Ravelry (this one's not free).  Its described as a quick, yet interesting knit, but I have to say that I didn't find it all that quick to knit up - it feels like I've been knitting this forever.  It might be because this is the first thing I've knitted in a size 4 or it might be because it's a top down knit, which makes it seem longer the further into it I got.  However I am really pleased by how well it came out.  The pattern is really easy to follow, with some nice detailing.  So I am two thirds of the way through P's birthday presents.

Joining in with Creative Friday.
