Little swan

Now that it's back to the real world, it was time to get back to the knitting.

Little Miss Rowan has a birthday coming up in a couple of months, and the other day when Mom and I were out shopping, she came across the perfect little sundress for the little princess.

Looking at it, I decided it needed a shrug!
I'm modifying my Cygnus pattern to a) fit Miss Rowan, and b) be more shrug-length. I'm kinda winging it, so depending on the results, it may or may not end up as a released pattern.
I'm using Island Yarn Pagoda (Superwash Merino and Bamboo) that I won from Vera in the I ❤ Fall KAL last year. The colour is called Carnation and it's nice mix of bubblegum pink, mauve and grey. It's hard to see at the moment, with with the feather and fan, it's mixing up into uneven, wavy stripes.

I'm only about halfway through the first chart, but once I get past the armholes, this thing should fly.

Perfect color for a little girl's shrug.

I love how you can just wing a design. That would scare me to death.

That yarn is scrumptious! Such a pretty mix. Can't wait to see it done.

I generally have to stick to the pattern at hand so I impressed at your winging talents. ;-)
