OK - so it's maybe not the most flattering photo, but you get the general idea.
Now for some confessions:
- I loved crocheting this but, as a crochet Newbie (it's my second project and the first was just a scarf!), the first time I started this shrug I didn't get the pattern right by any stretch of the imagination - luckily there is no photographic evidence! I frogged it all and, second time round, ignored the detailed instructions and just looked at the bit which told me what I should have at the end of each round! That seemed to work!
- This was meant to be a shrug for my niece in Australia but, despite lot of very careful measuring during crocheting, I seem to have a shrug that's my size instead. Ermmmmm ... not sure how that happened, but on my lap it was the right size (honest!); all put together it's a totally different story. I'm truly sorry - guess this one's for me, even if it isn't a colour I'd normally wear. Back to the drawing board for that particular birthday present - oh well!
- My tummy isn't normally that flat - I was sucking it in like crazy!!!!!
Now, what else can I crochet? I seem to have the bug?!
