Ok, I solved the dilemma about whether or not to make a shrug.
I didn't know if I would wear one or how it will look so I didn't want to waste/use my really beautiful yarn on it.
Then I was just laying down for a little nap and my arms were really cold and I thought I wish I had one of those shrugs right now just for my arms.
Then.... as so often happens when laying down and dozing... the idea came: Make the Shrug in the cheap yarn you have laying around and see how you like it. Then, I can make it again in my expensive beautiful yarn and alter it if it needs it. And I can wear the other one in bed and stuff and...
oh does this sound crazyyyyyyyyyy? Anyhoo, that's what I'm going to do. I went and bought some acrylic for some reason, I guess to practice on and I never used it so I'm going to use it up. It's actually quite nice feeling.
