Granny Shrug

Hello Friends...yes, it's been awhile.  Life gets busy, kids get sick, other priorities take precedent over the fun and creative side of life.  So, here I am, back with some fun stuff...

Some of you may be familiar with the famous 'Granny Shrug' by Kirsty.  It seemed wherever I was on the Internet, Ravelry, Pinterest, Flickr, this adorable shrug was staring at me on my computer screen, begging to be hooked up:

For my rendition, I used Bernat Harmony, which is a nice bulky, soft acrylic yarn, with a size 8mm hook.  This was yarn I had in my stash already, so it was nice to find a project for it.  I think it turned out pretty great! 

Give it a try...detailed instructions can be found on her beautiful blog, kootoyoo.  It really couldn't be more easy...
