Worst Pun ever. But look!

Pattern: Reading In Bed Shrug from IK Spring 2007.

Materials: Sublime Cashmere Silk Merino Aran (approx 1.5 balls), size 4.5mm Clover Bamboo Straight Needles.

Alterations: Made using aran-weight after I realised I could not preserve my sanity as a new knitter and carry on with the mohair stipulated in the pattern. This was such a great pattern for a newbie: a rectangle joined at two ends, and a good introduction to lace knitting.  Admittedly, this had lain on my bedroom floor for over six months, but is now a testament to the powers of blocking and reseaming. I even wore it out for a nutritious coffee and houmous salad sandwich:

Note the evil grey scarf that I will chug on with whilst reading up on the Seventeenth Century. Deadline’s a-ticking!
