Finally




I have been knitting this Debbie Bliss baby shrug for almost a year now. I can say with all honesty that this is the most confusing knitting pattern I've ever come across. I developed some deranged stubbornness about this one so I knitted and unravelled, knitted and unravelled, until I finally googled the pattern and came across many blog posts about it - most of the cries for help (satisfying to read that I'm not alone) and one that actually explained it in more detail. I'm not even sure I love the result that much. But I do love that hand dyed wool, it reminds me of the smurf ice-cream and blood orange ice-cream I used to eat as a child.

Enjoy your weekend!
