Dreamy Knit Shrug


This is the Dream in Color Shrug I'm knitting for my Mom out of Jade Sapphire Cashmere, exactly halfway done.

I seem to spend a lot of time spreading it out and looking at it.  I like the lacy pattern very much.  I love how the Cashmere feels.  Knitting this pattern in this yarn reinforces my belief that life is too short to knit with cheap yarn.

This is a surprisingly easy pattern — the repeats are short and quickly remembered.  I've inserted markers to make it easy to keep up with where I am, so I can knit this in lectures or while talking with friends over coffee.  It looks a bit long, or perhaps that's just wishful thinking on my part, as my Mom is smaller than I am, so if it's too large, well, um, we all know how that one goes.
