Seaming the Shrug

This is definitely the fun part.  Knitting done, finishing commenced.

I have sewn up the side seams and did a quick try on before picking up stitches around the opening so I can knit the body of the sweater.


Sadly, the sizing appears to be just perfect for my Mom.  I had been secretly harboring hopes it would be too big for her and I would have to gracefully step in to spare her from the horror of it, but, sadly, no.  It should be just right for her.

Next to pick up a bunch of stitches and knit some ribbing.  I'm hoping to finish it in time for her to wear for her grandson's graduation.
