Okay, ignore the unmade up face, the bags under my eyes (little sleep last night, don't know why), the hideous early 90's decor AND the paper chains left over from Christmas - I have removed them now - and focus on the most FUGLY piece of knitting I've ever made! What on earth does that thing strangling my neck and constricting my arms think it is doing? Not looking good at any rate.
Worthy of the Overalls of Shame perhaps...
Anyway, it is the free criss cross shrug pattern from Lionbrand.com. http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/50735.html?noImages
I didn't use Lion yarn because I don't have any. I swatched and my gauge was spot on with the yarn I was using. Not sure what happened. This will be frogged and become something else. One day.
