My eldest daughter has had a bit of a growth spurt recently and has been growing out of a lot of sleeves. I saw the Queen of the Waves pattern recently and decided that it would be a nice quick knit and would result in a shrug she could wear during the Spring and Summer until I've had a chance to knit her something a bit more substantial.
I'm knitting it with some stash yarn as I'm still Cold Sheeping. It's a colourway called Poison Ivy and is by Wharfedale Woolworks. I'm hoping to add some silver beads to the neckline of the shrug to make it that little bit more special.
The colours have really pooled on the back. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with the sleeves :-) I'm just going to do the plain sleeves this time although I think the lace sleeves are very striking. I think the busy-ness of the yarn I'm using would detract from them though.
I'm joining in with Nicole's Keep Calm Craft On so hop over for more projects :-)
