I call myself a crochet fashion designer. I think I can call myself that because that is what I do with the majority of my time. If I am not crocheting, sketching, swatching and surfing the web for inspiration, I am thinking about crochet design. While most people are up all night worrying about their finances (I admit I do that sometimes), I am losing sleep over what stitch pattern I am going to use for my next shrug design.
Other things I have to do/be: Wife, Mother, Office Manager for www.leftcoastscales.com, part-time Yoga Instructor, Household CEO, CFO, COO and Janitor.
I am also a nerd! I am a lifelong Trekkie or Trekkor (whatever) but I hate Star Trek Conventions. I am a Frank Herbert Dune Fanatic and I will go up against anyone on Dune references.
An easy-to-make, crochet, summer shrug in cotton or cotton-blend. Nice for those muggy, summer evenings (or dry, smokey, summer evenings if you are in Southern California like me!).
I used 4 skeins of Lily Sugar N' Cream in Hot Blue for the model shown in the photos.

14 ch sts = 4 in. Gauge is not very important because of the large size and loose, easy fit.
