Is it still Sleeve Island if you only have sleeves?

Here I present evidence that I am indeed participating in what the fabulous Anna has referred to as our non-committal, "meh"-type shrug-along. Which I quote directly from her because it made me laugh and laugh. And is true.

The directions for this shrug say that it is sized for a "close, body-conscious fit." Yeah--if you're an Olsen twin, maybe, or Lindsay Lohan. Those of us with the boobies? Need to do a little work. So here we are, after much knitting, tinkering, resizing: the first half of the Regency Defense Shrug:

During the shoot that produced the above photo, Marc also captured this massively charming shot of Bailey, with which I will leave you for the time being.

That shrug looks really cute. Shrugs, like ponchos, are so not for me, but I like to see them on other people. What yarn are you using?

That shrug looks adorable and so does Bailey! I feel your pain for the extra work you need to put in... I have the same problem! Have a good long weekend...

Oh, you're blog is making me feel homesick for Austin - the last place I lived (and the place I felt most at home) before skipping the country for good. If I hadn't fallen madly in love with someone wanting to drag me away from there, I might be finishing up a dissertation from UT Austin, too. I did manage to get my master's from there, at least. I have great memories of my time there.

Your dog is, quite possibly, the cutest thing I have seen ALL WEEK! Such a sweet little face there - he needs a cookie!
