Hi! I finished ANOTHER object. I’m in a knitty frenzy. A frenzy where I at no point know what to knit next…. But that was cured for a little bit when I finished this the first time.I had to re-knit. I’ve never done that before. I generally just finish, am disgusted with the end product, and then never look at it again. I guess I had the will to redo this, for 2 reasons:

1. Because it’s small, and only took 2 days the first time and since I was re-doing it smaller, it should take less time.

2. Because I had a skirt that matches it soooo well. Of course, the skirt I’m wearing in the pictures is not that skirt, but still.
(The skirt has red bamboo on it. And the ribbing reminds me of bamboo, so I love love LOVE them together.)

I wore the shrug and the skirt to work today (with the black tank I’m wearing in the photos) And I’ve gotten many many compliments. *squeeeee* I love compliments.

I have alot of leftovers from this yarn which was reclaimed from a frogged project AGES ago. So I’m tinkering with it, along with some leftovers from My Shawl Collar Cardigan (VK fall ’05). Yay for stashbusting! (Ok – so I’m really just trying to talk myself into the stashbusting excitement… but you know how it is)
