Hi, folks! I have been away for quite a while. April was the last time I posted. A lot has happened in the last 6 months. Moved into a new apartment, did the whole Farmers Market Scene. The summer was pretty great. Now fall is upon us; or rather, has been upon us for some time now.

The weather here can't decide what it wants to be when it grows up. One day it's hot, the next it's cold.

So, I took some time to plan out a real blog this time. I am hoping to have a pattern posted soon. I have been working on writing one myself, from scratch, and it is a bit harder than it seems. I am winging it more or less. I just have to proof read it and see if I can follow my own directions, and then I shall share it with you all :)

The plan is to share patterns, ideas, tutorials, and just fiber art information in general.

You can find me on Ravelry under the user name NCC-1701. I'm on a few of the forums there.

The weather here can't decide what it wants to be when it grows up. One day it's hot out, the next it's cold. Fall is definitely upon us; has been for some time now, at least here in the Midwest.

I found a great looking shrug on the Lion Brand website that I wanted to try. I am about 95% done with it. I am adding some extra rows to each side so that the sleeves will be a little longer.

It is a super easy project though, and I feel that a beginner could even handle this. If you can make a single crochet stitch, you can do this! It is a longer project because you're basically making a large rectangle.

Here is the link to the pattern I used: Simple Shrug. Lion Brand's site has the same pattern under a couple of headings, made out of different types and colors of yarn, but the pattern is basically the same.

I used two colors for mine, alternating every 13 rows until it was the right size.

It's coming out beautifully. I am hoping to finish it soon, so I can start wearing it! Pictures will be posted as soon as I have the finished product.
