2005 knitting - sari silk shrug

Technically my sister knitted this. I took the yarn, needles and pattern on holiday, planning to knit it once Clapotis was finished, but HP was knittingless and wanted something to do.

Pattern: Popcorn shrug from Interweave Knits staff shrugs

Yarn: Sari silk yarn from Hipknits.

Needles: 8mm, 9mm, 10mm, 12mm

Modifications: We had to go down in needle size to get gauge. It's a few rows because the yarn was running out.

Date: August 2005

If I knitted with this yarn again, I'd alternate skeins every few rows. There's a definite colour change in the middle. I like the way it shows off the yarn with a very simple shape.
