Oh, Mark Twain...I only wonder why you keep rereading it then!

Pattern: Two-Toned Ribbed Shrug by Stefanie Japel from the book Fitted Knits
Yarn: 4 skeins of an aran weight pure white angora/wool blend (Lush by Classic Elite Yarns)
1 skein of white lace-weight mohair-sparkly nonsense (Gossamer by Karabella)
Inspiration: My wedding dress is strapless and thus utterly scandalous by Orthodox standards. Something had to be done.

My school's little dusty library, which has been shut up for a few years now, supplied most of my choices. One day at summer camp, during the little ones' nap, I had this irresistible urge to devour a book, so I grabbed Little House in the Big Woods, swallowed it whole and proceeded to gallop through the rest of Little House series. I spent the fall with Anne & co. As always, I began by idolizing her, found myself beginning to get annoyed with her, and just in time, one of her Jonah days would sweep her back into my affections.
