From Butterfly to Batt, Yarn to Shrug

Reading -in- Bed shrug by Pam Allen, available for free dowload from Interweave Knits. The Loop club batt was inspired by butterflies....(she sent pictures of butterflies, I chose a pink and brown one)... and the shrug lace pattern looks like butterflies to me!

I made the sleeves longer, and added a crochet edge in the back for length and proper draping.

And yes, I do need to weave in the ends.....

Those batts looked lovely! I really like the yarn you made from it, and the the finished shrug looks great!

WOW! It must really be satisfying to wear something that you knit from yarn that you spun.
