I’ve been wanting to knit this shrug/scarf ever since I saw it.  Somehow I got sidetracked though and forgot about it until I was suffering a "what to knit?" crisis yesterday and pulled out all my knitting books.

This design is by Teva Durham from the book Scarf Style.  If you’ve ever thought scarves were boring to knit, then you haven’t seen this book.  Most of the designs in the book will challenge my modest knitting skills, however this particular design is fairly simple and it’s so cute.  I picture it paired with a tank top, although by the time I finish I’m sure it will be too warm to wear it until fall/winter next year.  That’s okay, it will keep.

The yarn I’m using is rather delicious–it’s Debbie Bliss Chunky Cashmerino in light teal.  I bought quite a lot of it for a sweater project that I haven’t blogged because I’m not sure if I’m going to do anything with it.  I’m not crazy about the finished sweater, though it was the first one I designed and I really should keep it (as opposed to unraveling it and using the yarn for something else).  Still deciding.
