Now that I've finished my daughter's socks and Gatsby Girl (which is off to my finishing friend, Rene), I was anxious to cast on for my next project. I have four skeins of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in a fuschia colorway that I bought a couple of years ago, intending to make a scarf. Not so interested in making more scarves at the moment, I sought out an appropriate project on Ravelry. I found that several people had made the Retro Redux Shrug from Lace Style with this yarn. The many pictures of finished Retro Reduxes convinced me to try this project, which should also be a quick knit after the rather prolonged (4 months) Gatsby Girl.
I knit a couple of inches this morning and I think I'm going to like this project. Since it involves 4 needle size changes, I am happy to have my new KnitPicks Options Needle Set, which I am using for the first time and LOVING! If I have a skein left over, I will try a pair of Fetchings.
I'll keep you posted!
