On Wednesdays I try to feature photos of some of the work that I crocheted myself. After all that’s what makes each crocheter unique, right? Today I’d like to share one of the first shrugs that I crocheted. (Not the very first one, that’s featured here). It’s made from Lion’s Brand Fisherman’s Wool, a yarn I quite love. I don’t wear this shrug often because it’s slightly big on me but I thought it was a really nice addition to a dress I love that I wore to the Discarded 2 Divine event recently. I didn’t like the way it kept falling off me since it is slightly big so right before I left the house I added a vintage button at the collar.

  1. You actually like Fishermen’s Wool? I found it to be scratchy and very splitty. I got four knots in one skein of yarn, and three in another! I was definitely not impressed with the quality of the fiber or the yarn itself.

      @Nancy … Interesting to hear a different viewpoint on this yarn. I’ve actually really enjoyed working with it despite the fact that I usually do prefer softer yarns (cashmerino, merino, alpaca especially). And no problems with knotting on my end either. Good things there’s lots of different yarn options out there so there’s something for everyone!

    Very sassy! It’s one of those shrugs I’d take with me all summer to over-air conditioned restaurants and the office. Warm but not too.

  3. I just decided to use the Fishermen’s Wool yarn I have for a rug- I’m pretty pleased with how it’s turning out so far.

      @Nancy – cool, I’d love to hear how it ends up turning out!
