Kendra has her blanket

The Hope Blanket has made it's way to Kendra, safe and sound. Check out her most recent blog post to see pics of her with it and to read about her crazy cancer journey.

Thanks again to all of you who donated to the Hope Lodge and for the work that was put into the gorgeous blanket.

A shrug knit in Charity

Charity is one of the newer yarns that Chris has offered us. 900 yards of Corridale and it is absolutely lovely.

This pattern is Ursula from Knits Three Ways by Melissa Matthay.

The ribbed edging causes the sleeves to pull in a bit. Try knitting the lace piece about 2” longer to compensate.

There is 5 1/2 ounces left from one skein which is plenty of yarn for another project.

Bugg and I both like the ribbing and it makes this shrug fit nicely. We have other shrugs that slip around the shoulders and adding a ribbing such as this will make a much better fit.

See it on Ravelry
