This was us heading out to the store, where Jerome received all sorts of compliments on his behavior, his looks and his hat. A few people even noted that it looked hand knit, though nobody commented on his blanket, and I didn't want to brag. Perhaps I should have unfolded it and wrapped it about him with a flourish.
The shrug was made with almost an entire skein of Knit One Crochet Too Marco Polo in the Oslo (I think, #175) colorway. I should have done one more repeat of the dropped st pattern, but it fits as it is and I didn't feel like undoing the bound off edge and going back 10 rows to repeat it. I have no idea what I am going to do with the little amount I have left of this yarn. Maybe one of those knit necklaces, but I don't think I actually have enough for that.
Anyway, off for now. I'm going to try to get a batch of blackberry lime jam made and canned tonight.
