Rock Shrug - DONE!

Started Sept 3/11
Finished Nov 9/11

This will be a shrug for my youngest. I LOVE the colors in this yarn.

The only confusing part was what to sew together for the arms. You need to sew the ribbing so that it becomes a complete loop. Then you pick up stitches to make the sleeve.

Needles: Size 3 & 5

Yarn: The Sanguine Gryphon Free Range in Rock Ptarmigan

Leftover Cowl - DONE!

Started Oct 20/11
Finished Oct 29/11

I had leftover yarn from the shawl I was knitting so I decided to make a cowl but Jennifer wanted a scarf. I modified the pattern. I am using size 7 needles instead of size 5. I casted on 42 stitches and purl the odd rows instead of knitted. I ran out of yarn so I sewed the ends to make a cowl.

Needle: Size 7 circular

Yarn: The Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! in Cockchafer
