Jonquil Shrug

A present for Alexis, a shrug made of pale jonquil Euroflax linen.

I had to wet it down and block (stretch) it out to dry to give it shape:

Putting dozens of pins in the bed made me a bit nervous, but I got them all up.

I made and sent this ages ago, but forgot to post pictures because I was waiting for her to wear it and show me! I can wait no longer!

This was a fun, easy knitting with a free pattern from my local yarn shop in Key West.
