Crochet Diva

Here’s the first crochet shrug I’ve made. I designed it myself based on a shrug Nancy had in the shop that she bought at White House Black Market. Of course I’m never going to make anything white and using tiny yarn…so I just looked at the overall stitch pattern, and the overall construction shape (fold in half and seam) and ran with it!

Here’s the beautiful back. I guess it doesn’t really go well with the green shirt, now does it?

It’s so pretty it makes me smile like a fool.


About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.
