Off the Needles: Hart

My sister Emma was married on July 16th and she chose these amazing coral strapless dresses from Urban Outfitters. I wanted to make a shrug to match the dress so that my shoulders weren't bare during the reception. I gave you a little sneak peek before the wedding and now I can finally share with you...

I couldn't believe I was able to find an exact match to the vibrant coral of the dress but I practically tripped over this colourway at Boutique De Laine. I mean it just about jumped into my knitting bag as I walked in the door. It was my first visit to the store, it was highly recommended by Shannon and Amy and I can see why, they are so friendly there!

  1. So pretty! I'm so excited that I got to be able to see this being made :) It's gorgeous.

  2. Very cute! I would like to make something like this. I'll go 'fav' it now.

    Can't believe you got the yarn to match the dress so perfectly!
