No socks this time!

Well the packing is well underway....close to finished I think.  I wanted to take a little something for my adviser's daughter (besides Cheerios) and this seemed to be perfect!

Pattern: Baby Shrug
Size: 18-24 month
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease, Berry and a little bit of Lime (thank you YarnGurl)
Needles: US 8
Mods: Well I added the little flower, after all this girl's first word was flower so it seemed only fitting.  If I were to do it again I would do ssk instead of the weird decrease they had.  It seems a little big, but hopefully it will fit!

A close up of the flower, pattern here and leaf pattern here.

It is crazy trying to put your life on hold for a month, but I'm almost there and will have a great time...and will keep you updated on the knitting and sightseeing!

It's really cute! Love the addition of the flower. If it's a little too big, she'll be able to wear it for more than one season, which would be nice.

That is darling! And remember that a little too big is always better than a little too small. :)
