FO Poison Queen Shrug

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Mr Soaring Sheep and I don't really celebrate it although we have bought each other a small gift this year and will be having our usual takeaway for tea after the children are in bed :-p


I'm doing quite well with FO's at the moment. I might even have another one for you next Friday too. Today it's my Queen of the Waves shrug using Wharfedale Woolworks Poison Ivy sock yarn.

I went for a plain sleeve which has a gentle flare at the end. I love the pooling this resulted in

There's also some fun pooling on the body too

The buttons were from Berry Nice Crafts and have this pretty leaf like design. I added beads to the neckline to make it a bit more special. I was planning on just doing silver beads but then I found the green and purple matched the yarn too so added all three :-)

My daughter seems quite pleased with her new shrug. It will work better when the weather is a bit warmer and she's wearing Summer dresses

It was a lovely project to knit and there are several different sleeve styles and fastenings detailed in the pattern so I might make another one at some point, perhaps with the lacey sleeve option.

I'm linking in with FO Friday, Fiber Arts Friday and Creative Friday today. Hope you have a good weekend, thanks for visiting my blog :-)
