Jellyfish Shrug Pattern

I apologize heartly to all my visitors and friends, for I have been away from this knitting blog in the past 20 months. I had taken a long and eventful journey in the wide world. How have you been?

And I've finally found time to write up the Jellyfish shrug pattern again. The original one got lost when my last hard drive died out appoximately 18 months ago, so even myself could not find a copy of it. Anyway, Jellyfish now gets back to life and here it is, on Etsy and here.

Standard-fitting short-sleeved shrug with lacy sleeves and a lacy ribbing border.

Jellyfish is an excellent project to move beyond scarves, or to show off your favourite lace pattern. The body is worked in one flat piece from one sleeve edge to the other. Then the sleeve seams are sewn and stitches are picked up along the edges for a lacy ribbing border, which provides just enough textural contrast. Worked on big needles, Jellyfish requires merely one or two balls of worsted weight mohair yarn, plus approximately 100 yards of DK weight yarn for ribbing – a truly good stash-reducing project!

Hi Iris! I'm so glad to hear that you're well and have been having adventures :)

I also wanted to let you know that it seems your Pencil Sketch pattern download is not behaving quite right (it is having an identity crisis and thinks it is a tiny html file).

Welcome back :)

Welcome back...I had just recently found your blog so had not really been missing you (or known what I had been missing). Looks like you have some great patterns.

And I will second Octopus Knits, only with a little more pleading: please please please fix the Pencil Sketch Cami download if you can. It's the *only* thing that will do for some favourite wool of mine. Please?

Welcome back Iris!! I had been worried about you actually!! I have neglected my blog quite a bit as well over the past couple of years but do try to fit a post in now and then! I spend all my time on Ravelry these days with countless other toy knitters!

Our little Thomasina (remember the drawings?) passed away in December 2007 at the age of 16 but her brother hung in there for an extra year and a bit!! We now have 2 Abyssinians along with our 2 Burmese and Jackie dogs

Great to see you back Cheers Lucy
