Sanctuary Shrug

Some eye candy today…

Inspiration for ways to wear a simple shrug.

Dress it up, or down.

Wear in urban or leafy jungles.

Wear it right side up, or up-side-down and even inside out.

If you look below K8 wears the Sanctuary shrug in•side•out as she likes the texture as well as the exposed seams for her outfit.

A Fresh Vibe

Easy to wear, simple to knit, hard to look bad in it! You can even put it on UP SIDE DOWN and find a whole new vibe (this way provided by my eldest daughter has become my fave!)

So shrug off any misconception that you can’t rock the shrug! And if you are ready to start knitting a shrug now Sanctuary Shrug is available here! 

Ps. Want a glimpse of the newest shrug to come…

ALOHA FRIENDS!

Grab your knitting and enjoy a bit of stormy weather! The beach is beautiful no matter what the conditions. Don’t worry, I found a spot to keep you safe and dry.

So let’s do this together!

Of note: there is a wee bit of wind noise initially, but it dies out once we sit down to chat!
