Retro Redux Shrug!

My Retro Redux Shrug is done and it is so soft and cuddly! This was a KAL with my favorite yarn store in Atascadero, the Scarlet Skein. Such a fun, easy pattern...already thinking of doing another!:) I did this one with Cascade Cloud 9 about 2.5 skeins, size 8, 9, 10, and 10.5 straight needles and size 8 circular needle. The yarn has some angora in it so every now and then some would fly off and tickle my nose!:) Still trying to decide what to cast on next...haven't done socks in awhile and need to get caught up on my sock kits! Still crocheting on the baby blanket and need to get that done because I need to do three more! Plus the hats and booties to match!
Dang I look plumpy in these pictures! Maybe I need to put Jimmy on a chair when he takes them so he doesn't capture all my chins!:) Plus the dress isn't that flattering now that I see it in a picture...but in a 103 degree weather its nice and cool! Having to fast today for an ultrasound. I'm sooooooooooooo thirsty! It isn't until 1:00 p.m. either! I'll have to miss my swim time cuz I can't workout that hard and not drink...wah! And yes I'd love some cheese with that whine!:) Just a little crumb!

Sisters in the Whine Dept too! LOL!

Your shrug is so cute!! Great job!! And yes, the socks are so neglected lately...I'm so sad for them!

What's the ultrasound for? I have to fast tomorrow for a quick exam for life insurance. Pretty cool that they come to you to do it. But I still wish it was over with! :P

Swimming is on...gotta go watch! LOL! Hugs!!
