Shrug Update

for all of you out there with baited breath for me to finish this thing, I feel I should tell you I don't think it's going to look like the mock-up I did in my earlier post. Working up the diagram, the knit stitches sort of frame the purls - but it doesn't look like this working down and I'm not sure how to fix it, or whether it can be fixed. I've been knitting and ripping, knitting and ripping and I'm tired of it, I'm just knitting through. It will be interesting to see how it turns out -- and I'm really glad it will be on my back!

Note: the safety pin marks where I stopped knitting up the pattern chart and started working down. You can see that the older yarn is in touch with it's angoraness, getting a little fuzzy, while the newer part has yet to fuzz.

I think I'm going to rip it back (yet again) to the point of reversal (the safety pin) and just knit it following the pattern. That will be fine, this reversal just didn't work out.

huh? what is Happening to you? i'm gonna have to go back to the start of this and figure out what the heck you're talking about.
where did this shrug come from? have you made as many shrugs as you've made spiral scarves? i didn't have internet for days so i had to knit my junx without a pattern. I'm like "i think there was a k2tog row to half the size at the seed stitch maybe..."

I've gone photo crazy -- it's all the same shrug. It's Ravelry, it's got me into pimping my projects on the internet. Luckily I took a picture of your scarf before it went to Turkey. I had to hunt down a couple of friends and take their pics. And the scarf that went to my Aunt is a goner.
