Autumn Shrug and Winter Hat

Apologies for the crappy iphone pictures, but I misplaced the battery charger for my camera, so it's not in working order at the moment. I will post actions shots of this beauty soon to come though. ^_^

This is my Autumn Hew Shrug, to keep me warm in my super cold office. Kind of missed the mark on the whole autumn thing as it's about to snow any second, but whatever, it's gorgeous.
The original pattern is here: HEW, but I added some obvious changes. I used contrasting colors for the body of the shrug and the collar, and I made the collar this pretty lacy leaf pattern. It's also sparkely, but the pictures don't do it justice.

Here's a close up of the leaf pattern:

I also just finished this little baby from Debbie Stoller's new book Superstar Knitting.
I didn't use nearly as fabulous yarn, but I love the way it turned out. It's pretty intense with all the cable work when you look at the back of it.

  1. Pictures do neither of these knitted items justice! I love how both of them turned out. Sparkly lace, plump cables, boob-enhancing shrug...what's not to <3???
