The blue shrug thing is progressing. There's very interesting construction on this--stitches on the side of the back are picked up, then the front is knit in short rows. I am almost done with the front and then will pick up and do the left hand side. Then, I sew the shoulder seams and set in the seams.
It's going well and is fun to knit. Tehre's also this sort of automatic icord edge which is kind of cool. All in all, I think this is a good knit with a nice challenge to it.
