My Black Shrug

It's a crap picture, but I wanted to post something up (it's been too long). I'll post a better photo just as soon as I get my backside into gear. It was a bit of an undertaking making this thing really. Doubling up the stitches was more taxing on my tiny brain than I'd anticipated, and even doubled it wasn't coming out at the right stitch height. So I was sticking in rows of Half Trebles(or Half Double Crochets, if you prefer) and having to keep track of when and where so that I could duplicate it on both sides. Using a knitting row counter made life a lot easier - otherwise I'd never be able to watch House and crochet at the same time.

Still, the agony is over now, and I've moved on to something that's just as tricky. I'm beginning to regret this whole move away from granny square-based blanket making...
