LEMONADE OUT OF LEMONS


So, this is what I have-- 3 rectangles (2 small ones for sleeves and 1 long one for body..The Design DOES NOT WORK BECAUSE when the back part is long enough so there is enough ease for the arms to actually move it hangs down..Now the Lemon Aid part is that--I AM TURNING IT INTO A SHRUG--you heard me--A SHRUG. I LOVE SHRUGS--I know not a big design idea, but you have to realize what I am working with--a long rectangle. I hope to have it finished by the end of next week...because I have another commission from KNITSIMPLE with a Aug 30 deadline. NEVER EVER GIVE UP...

I love shrugs, too, and I think the pattern looks great. Are you going to add a fancy border?

I think a shrug will be a great idea! Glad you could salvage your project! :)

It will be beautiful either way - I love the stitch pattern. You are great at making lemonade out of lemons and I know this will work out wonderfully!

Hang in there, I'm sure you will come up with something both original and beautiful.
