UFO Sighting

This UFO here was trying its best to disguise as a skirt or a dishcloth. I don't know which. Innocuous enough but something trigger my warning bells.

So I prodded it a little and gasp! It's a pink UFO saucer!

Nah, it’s just my shrug. Though I must say, it does look like some strange creature in that snapshot up above.

Shrug
Ribbing - Phildar Flirt in Hot Pink
Seed stitch - Schachenmayr Punto in Pastel Pink & DMC in Purple

I used Seed Stitch. Yes I was trying to finish up some yarns and make sure I have enough for the shrug. It's a mish mash of yarns and patterns I have. :) So here -


Excuse my shaky hands. For some reason my hands was pretty shaky last night. Try as I may, the picture on the right has been taken many time, but still shaky. That was the best of the lot.

Here is a shot of the back and side. That's all the acrobatics I can manage for the back. Don't ask for more or I'll probably sprain my back. I had to take this shot 3 times to make it work.


This project was suppose to be a simple project. I had trouble starting though. I ended up ripping mine a couple of times. I started with the Punto but realized I didn't have enough yarn. I only had 3 balls. So I had to rip. Then I decided to use Phildar Flirt for the ribbing instead and use Punto with the purple DMC to help blend the 2 pink yarns better. I think the color blend worked out fine. Then it was waay too big, so rip again. 4th time was the charm. Not too bad! I still have 3 more balls of Punto in blue. That's destined for Minisweater from Glampyre.

I've been seeing these on crafsters and they showed an old magazine with one. Great idea! I'm going to have to make one for my niece. (It's a rectangle, so I'll probably do this by machine.)
