Bias Shrug has a day out. . . . .

I've finished the back of Jaden, but haven't taken any recent pictures. Instead I thought I would share more pictures of my shrug - this time with me wearing it! I got to wear it yesterday at church with my dress. And after church I changed in to jeans and a t-shirt but left the shrug on as it was a little cool, (no sunny spring weather for us yesterday, but at least we didn't have snow!)

I love that I can wear this when I want to dress up or down. But in my honest opinion, I liked it with the jeans the best. The only thing I didn't like (and you can't really see it from the pictures) is the yarn was making a mess all over my dark t-shirt. I seriously needed a lint brush by the end of the day. That surprised me about this yarn, because it had a sort of sheen to it (KnitPicks Shine Worsted) I didn't think it would 'shed' like that? Perhaps after a wash it might not be so bad? Or if it is, I will just have to wear white with it next time.



I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I know some of you got snow! We are having nice sunny weather again today :-) Oooh sorry, didn't mean to rub that in!

The shrug is lovely. And I think you're right; it's much better with jeans. Too bad about the shedding though... Can you send some warmer weather our way?

Oh Denise, that is stunning!! It looks a little bluer in the first photo, but either way it is just lovely. Nice work. Glad you got some sunshine today!!

the shrug really does look good with both... it might get more wear paired with jeans, though! : )

Very cute on you! Glad you had a good Easter!

Oooh this is lovely. It does look great dressed up or down. Although I think my fave might be with the jeans and the dak t-shirt -- it really does make the knit pop! Beautiful!

it's great either way, but the lace does pop on the solid color shirt so beautifully. you look fabulous!!

Amanda said...

Wow! That looks fantastic on you. I love it with the jeans, but still think it's a really versatile knit.

Lisa said...

Oh my goodness - that looks PERFECT. I don't normally like shrugs - but this one I do!

It fits you so well. I would wear it almost everyday if I looked that good in it.

What pattern did you use?

Ann said...

You look great in the shrug & I also like it with jeans. Wearing it with a dark color t-shirt really brings out the color of the shrug.

I love this shrug! Beautifully done. Okay I am tagging you. (Now remember, I'm slow to these things...) How I understand things is you have to list 7 things about yourself and then tag 7 other people by leaving a comment on 1 of their posts. (I only tagged 2 people because I'm lazy.) But you get the idea!

I'm looking forward to more beautiful knits! :-)
