Finally a FO for Amber!



So I cheated a bit.. it's just a shrug, and it knit up very very quickly, but Amber seems to like it, and I was really happy with the way it came up. I used this free pattern from Elann, but modified the finishing, and ommitted the lace. It's knit in South Amberican single ply merino hand dyed by moi, and of the 300grams I prepared for use, I only used 137! so I have over half left, which I may put up on the store. I'm not sure how much wear it will get, but at least I can say that I HAVE made something for my daughter!

That is gorgeous!! Amber is beautiful :-)

You might be surprised how much wear it gets, I've found Kaia's very practical for those slightly chilly mornings where you know you'd be taking a jumper off by 11am...
