I do really like this, and it doesn’t have the “baby bootie” factor at all. It is a bit small–I think if I had my druthers I’d add another two inches in length on each end and another inch in width to meet my XL sizing–but still definitely workable. I’m definitely planning on making this again.
And speaking of the color, this yarn would, actually, make lush baby clothes–in any color. If I had grandchildren–which I don’t yet, thankfully–they’d be drowning in things made from this yarn.
Sorry I was so spotty in my posting on this. As much as you can predict these things, I think life is going to calm down a bit over the next month so as I dip my needles into the shrug from Showers of Flowers, you’ll stand a chance of regular communication.
