I Do front

I Do pose with plant
The model in the pattern was posing with a flower. I chose a broad bean plant instead.

I Do back2
The colour is really off on this one!

Item name: I Do shrug
Recipient: Me
Pattern: I Do from knitty.com
Yarn: Sirdar Breeze DK (60% cotton, 40% acrylic) 216 g total (approx. 622 yds/570m)
Needles: 4 mm straights (one sleeve metal, and the other bamboo)
Size: Erm ... Mostly large I think!
Dates: June the 25th 2005 (!) to 28th of March 2006 (not constantly worked on).
Modifications: Yarn substitution and knit flat not in the round.
Notes and comments: After discovering that I couldn't do purl lace in the round, I converted it to knit in the flat. In retrospect, I should have added two edge stitches (I would have made seaming it a heck of a lot easier).

  • I have looked with want in my eyes at this shrug more than once...but maybe in the future....now I know who to hunt if/when I get stuck. Nice picture of a beatiful woman in a wonderful knit. I used to grow broadbeans long ago, they make wonderful soups when fresh....

    We must be psychic or something, my post today is about a shrug as well! ( but no broad beans I'm afraid

  • Wow, it looks fantastic!
    I've eyed this pattern too, but the purls kept me from knitting it(and well all the other projects I've got on the needles).
    I may come back to you to ask stupid questions should I ever attempt to knit this shrug.

  • Love the shrug, the broad bean certainly adds a certain something! The new accessory of 2006 - I think so!

  • FAB! Now *I* want to make one just like it! Knit flat and all.

  • Lovely shrug and you look fab in it! Oh, and I think I prefer the broad bean - much more original and, besides, it made me smile and the flower didn't. ;-)
