Shruggy

Behold...the finished two skein wonder!

I love the colors of this yarn...it was fun to see the subtle changes in greens, pinks, and silvery grays while knitting...but I'm not sure how I feel about the striping effect in the back, especially the browns and near-black.

Pattern: One Skein Wonder
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden, color 73, 2 skeins
Needles: US9 & US6 bamboo circulars

I knit the 14" size, which seems to be the right fit. It is a great little pattern, the perfect prelude to my first sweater...

It came out GREAT, Carol! I am proud of you. Looks so cute. The striping in the back is of no concern -- that's just the natural way the space-dye turned out. Gor-geous!

It turned out lovely and fits you great! I think the brown/black is throwing you off a little because the pink shirt you're wearing is picking up the pink in the shrug. Try a different shirt?
