Sunshine in Winter

Chloe mentioned in passing one day that she’d like me to make her a yellow sweater.  So I looked through my stash and yep, I had some yellow.  But not nearly enough to make an entire sweater out of it.  So I looked for another color to go with it, and this insanely bright pink caught my eye.  Together they reminded me of the colors in a sunrise/sunset, and the title “Sunshine in Winter” came to me.  After all, she’ll want to wear it through the winter, and what better way to inject some “Sunshine” into her grey and dreary “Winter”?  (Being in the NE UK, believe you me, winters are VERY grey and dreary.  Not to mention wet and windy.)

I used the Fluffy Pink Shrug Schematics, also known as the Mrs Who Shrug, found here on Crochetville.  Made with DK yarn and a “G” (4.0 mm) hook.  I just snagged one of Chloe’s other sweaters, which I knew fit her well, and used that to measure the new sweater against.

It was actually a bit of a surprise, because although she’d seen me working on it, she never asked what it was for, and I didn’t volunteer any information.  So this morning, I called her up to my bedroom, had her close her eyes and put it on her.  She was quite happy with it.  🙂

And now Lexi’s already put in an “order” for a similar one, in blue.
