I finally finished seaming the Hug Me Tight shrug from Lion Brand Vintage Knits. I realized that if I started on the new socks from my KSKS kit, I would never finish some of my UFOs. Anyway, without further ado:
Try not to laugh too hard at my goofy hair- it's humid outside :) I guess this was a fairly satisfying knit, except that the pattern is a little unclear in spots. Also, I wish they would have had a picture showing how to seam the two sides together, rather than just the words "sew back pieces together." Duh, thanks. The back ribbing looks a little more off in the photo than in real life (it's like a one row difference between the two sides). We'll see how long it lasts, since this is the shrug that's made from R*d H****t Soft Yarn in color Grape. That's right, it's... acrylic. Bleh. However, do you want to know the total cost? $4. Sweet.
Look who came with me to Paris...
Oh, and here is what we think is the creepiest sushi place ever:
And that sushi restaurant was literally the only, uh, family establishment for blocks and blocks. Gross!
