What are you most proud of? I think I am most proud of being able to alter the pattern a bit the second time around and still create a successful project. I have never trusted myself to do something beyond the written pattern, but now I know I can. I am also pleased to have learned the magic loop method...I am already using it on another project! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just jump in. It looks a little complicated but once you start, everything falls into place. The shrug done according to the workshop instructions knits up very quickly and makes a useful addition to any wardrobe!
