Shrug It Off

I made my first shrug. Again, another lovely pattern from the amazing Doris Chan. I loved the yarn color AND it's so soft and squishy. A bit warm for the current weather, but will be nice later this fall or on a cool summer evening or a trip to the movies...

Sigh...I have realized that I need to start planning my pictures better. (Obviously, I wasn't actually going to wear this shrug with a brown t-shirt.) Maybe take some outside, in natural lighting, too. All the "good" photos I see on other blogs or crafty websites usually involve more professional lighting. I'm just always so eager to say "woo-hoo!!! I finished it!!!" that I don't take the time to do things properly. Oh, well...

Yep. That's how I describe my cat.
AND that's also the kind of projects he likes to lay on.

Take Cara's Birthday Throw for example. (I can post pics now because the gift has been given.) I took a break one day. Got up for a few minutes. Came back and THIS is what I found.

He slept that way for like two hours. I had to work on something else because I didn't have the heart to move him. Plus, a twenty-three pound cat can pretty much sleep anywhere he wants to...
