This afternoon I finished the shrug I was making from Tirua.
It was a very quick knit made quicker by me running out of yarn. hmmm.
I was only able to work six rows after binding off the sleeves.
I think I should have used a size 11 needle after all. I think my gauge ended up sliding off at some point.
Boy howdy, I saw people on Ravelry saying this pattern ran small, but this thing is wee!
It's 8 inches long in the back and 12 inches across at the underarm. This all makes it a little on the snug side.
I wish it had ended up longer in the back, but it is kind of growing on me.
On the other hand, isn't there a pattern out there that only covers the shoulders and back?
Well, there you have. My experiment in making a one skein garment. Let's see how long it survives.
