FO: spring shrug

baby shrug, 12 mos.

This knitting basket of mine is overflowing with some nice leftover yarns.  I spied this lovely, left-over L.L. Bean-ish green and quickly cast on for a little shrug. 

I've picked up her summer wardrobe and put it into rotation, but the temps here are still chilly in the mornings and into the early afternoon.  Not time to show off her bare arms yet.  And a shrug is the perfect layering piece.  I knit her one about a year ago, so it seems a lovely moment to gift her a new one.

The pattern is Confection, by Tonya Wagner.  It is a delightful, quick knit with minimal seaming.  The 12 mo. size was probably a 2.5 hour project.
