Magenta Shrug

After a long time I wanted to knit some lace pattern again. It's a likeable change to work on something more difficult and have to think about every stitch. But it's really not a good idea if you like knitting while watching TV... too many mistakes...


But if you retain attention, the result is always worth. I wanted to make something else than a shawl  or scarf and decided for a shrug. I found so many beautiful patterns on Ravelry I almost could not choose just one of them. After all I chose Chocolate shrug by Katya Gorbacheva. It's available for free.

 You can find it here.

 Except the lace pattern, I was not worry about anything else. I just knitted a lace band...


... blocked it...


... and sew the ends of band to form sleeves. And a new shrug for cold spring evenings is finished :-)
