I'm still happy with it, when I first looked at this view it looked like a maternity top and Lord knows that's not a look I want but when I saw it on Gold it was so cute I copied her and like her I really like the elastic at the shoulders. It's a cute top don't let the maternity look scare you.
And here's the dress inspired by her with the completed shrug. Whew, those are some made some baby hips lol.
I always say you never want the first of anything I make, this is the second shrug and it came out a lot better. The only change I made was adding 10 stitches when casting on and I think I knitted more rows that the pattern called for I just kept measuring as I went along until it was long enough.
And this is what's up next.
My cousin was going to buy this when we went shopping in Texas but was generous enough to let me have it so I have to do it justice. She was going to use it for a lining and that's what I'm going to do using McCalls 5817, of course I'm making the pants not the skirt. The khaki is from my Wal-Mart stash--when they discontinued their fabric dept. at my local Wal-Mart, it was .98/yd.
Well that's it for my mid-week post, hopefully there will be some sewing done this weekend.
