Hmmmmmmm......I've never worn a 'shrug' before, so I'm not sure if I like this yet.
(or maybe I just don't like how lumpy I look in the picture LOL!)
I really like the way the fabric knitted up. The Manos softened wonderfully with a Eucalon bath and blocking.
Even with abbreviating the sleeve lenth of the pattern...the sleeves are loooong. I also don't care for how the seam runs down the inside of my arm...it kind of bugged me when I wore this for an hour or two. The sleeves also seem to have a tendency to twist around on my arms and I really DON'T like that.
I do like the lacy sleeve pattern. Very gracefuly and pretty.
Verdict's still out. I will reblock it and try to shrink the sleeve length with a blow dryer....I'll give it a chance and try wearing it a couple of times before the final decision.
Now it's back to the February Lady Sweater. She's been sadly neglected the past several days. Knit on.
