HOLY SMOKES, it's DONE!!
My daughter bought the wool for a project, then decided it was the wrong color and the wrong wool...... so mommy, will you buy me something else, and i'll give you this yarn.
it's really pretty wool... all sorts of shades of blues, from aqua to almost a purply blue - nearly impossible to get pictures of me wearing the shrug AND taking the pictures...... and kindly ignore the spots on the mirror. time to clean them again!
