Here it is, the project I’ve been hinting at for a couple weeks now: the Pimlico Shrug.
The Romney is a great yarn: two ply, with slight variations in thickness, and very wholesome and sheepy-scented. Up until now, the only single-breed yarn I’ve ever used is Merino, so I’m loving the experience of using a different single-breed yarn. And the Romney is a perfect match for the project. It drapes really well, and although it’s soft and a little fuzzy, eyelet pattern on the body is sufficiently giant that it doesn’t get lost in the fabric.
I am also loving the pattern: the body is one large rectangle and there are a grand total of two short seams, with sleeves and edging knit right to the body. Expect a FO photoshoot soon!
