My Green Ester


Here's my Ester in Green. I'm not sure I like it. The front is cute enough - I curled the edges over so that it does not have to close in front. More of a little shoulder shrug look.

The back... ugh. It looks to tight and does NOT flatter.

I really enjoyed knitting this project. The cables were a first for me and quite fun to learn, and the yarn was really pretty. I don't think I'd ever knit this pattern again and I doubt I'll wear this shrug or even give it away... we'll see what happens. Maybe in the fall I'll feel so inclined to throw it over a tee as a little cover-up for some grocery shopping.

I think it's lovely. Worn over something long sleeved may look even better. I love the colour too.

I felt like I was swimming in mine in the back. But moving it around a bit seemed to help. I love the way yours looks.
