Teal Aran Knit Shrug Modeled by Elle
I gave my mannequin Zelda the day off. Instead my very good friend (and the person who taught me to knit) Elle graciously agreed to model the latest addition to my store.
I originally knit this for myself. I really wanted to play with putting different cable patterns together. I found that I'm really a sweatshirt kind of girl and the bell sleeves kind of drove me crazy. (great advertisement huh). But it is truly one of a kind and took me about a month to knit. Thus the ridiculously high price. Elle said she would buy it, but being a knitter herself, she was inspired to go create her own version.
In any case, it's the only non-felted item in my shop.
