Retro Redux FO

Yay! I finished the Retro Redux Shrug at 5pm last night, just in time to wear to my friends house!

Now I know it's not the best example of it ever done, but it's my first shrug ever and I'm very proud of it. Just a couple of niggles: I should have made the next size up as it's a bit short at the back and underarms. Also, my cast on is a bit tight around my arm. That would probably be solved by making the next size up too, but overall I'm happy. It was a very easy and enjoyable knit! I used 3 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran for it.
No other knitting news really, I was spending all of my time trying to get this finished. Now I must get cracking on the Summertime Tunic as I have this pegged for the Rugby World Cup Knitalong on Ravelry. Go Ireland!

Love this on you! I must get that book!!!

Sorry about your tunic. We all have knitted garment that just doesn't work out for us!
