Metallic Shrug

I needed a quickie shrug to knit for Tori's prom dress...she needed to make her dress different from another girls dress, and so we decided to accessorize her dress to make it different.
I really hate the yarn I used, but for the most part, it came out 'ok' I made some crazy mistakes and did some weird stitches, but I had to finish it, so I told Tori that afterwards, she could toss it (ha ha...probably not) I guess all things are working projects, and always subject to learning something new.

for the most part, it came out nice and has some interesting techniques that I think I can use to make other things.
Yarn: Lion Brand Vanna's Glamour color 109 Sapphire
Pattern: Lacy Cap Sleeve Bolero by Phoenix Bess, in "IT GIRL KNITS"
You can find the book at or Borders, or Barnes and Nobles
