Spring is in the air!

When I saw this pattern in Knockout Knits, I was immediately diving through my stash to find the perfect yarn.  I choose a laceweight yarn and adjusted the gauge to fit the pattern, and it turned out beautiful. 

I wanted a lace shrug for this Spring, something to keep me cozy but feel free in that warmth, this patter fit that perfectly.

I knitted this pretty darn fast, but the FO pics, took forever, and then just posting them took forever.  I have worn this a few times already, and keep it folded nicely in view because it looks so pretty.

I'm rather choosy these days for my projects, I like to aim for complex or outside the lines patterns, and this was a nice one, not difficult, but not your typical construction.  Laura is so helpful too, with any questions  on her patterns, that was awesome. 

Here are the final FO pics...

 

Pattern: Quadro Convertible Shrug
Yarn: Araucania Trauco

Started: 1/11/15
Finished: 1/31/15

 

Notes: Used laceweight yarn; errata fixed by Laura Nelkin; all notes can be viewed on my Raverly project page here.

I've got a few more things in the works, progress is being made, I'll post as I have time, which can be hard, but I'm excited for each day that gets closer.

I wish we had more rain, the drought is saddening, but I guess until then, we can all enjoy the warmth of Spring.  Happy Spring!!
