Circular Shrug

It's been a great day. My husband took us out to a great lunch and then Michaels afterwards to buy new yarn! My husband watched my daughter while I was alone in Michaels looking at yarn! :D When I got home, I finished sewing up the ribbing on the sleeves and weaving in the ends. I've been dragging my feet on this project (I get bored with single crochets!) but now it's finally done! Yeah!!!! I'm always very happy to finish a project!

The circular shrug is from the book Positively Crochet! by Mary Jane Hall. I used 1 skein of Caron 1 lb. in sage. It was crocheted with a size K hook. The pattern was easy to follow. I had to redo one sleeve because I forgot to do a sc after each round. When I get distracted or too tired during crocheting, I tend to make mistakes. I had trouble keeping the right tension? because I have several little holes in it (I tried to sew most of them up)! I'm not too crazy about the color I picked but it's a good pattern and a good fit.

Here's a photo of my new shrug!

I think your shrug looks fantastic! And the color looks great on you too, with the black contrast :)
