Unfinished Concentric Squares

This is the project that I really do love, but ran out of yarn 16 rows from the end. Really messed up my day that did. However, I've put in a 911 call and everything is going to be ok (i think) It'll be finished soon thankfully cuz this is the THIRD unfinished blanket I currently have sitting in the WIP basket.

So I decided to start a new project, and sat on the sofa all day beside a sleeping, snoring Westie who always makes himself at home on anything soft. After a few movies, many hours, the Holland v Spain World Cup Final and nearly 3 balls of Sirdar Click Chunky later, I've nearly finished a shrug for myself. Just the second ribbed edge and some seaming and its ready to wear!

I like this shrug. Its the unshaped shrug on ravelry, and this is the second time I've knitted it. First time was for my sister in a nice Sirdar Escape pink colourway swore she'd wear it and now doesn't. That shouldn't surprise me really... just means I'm second guessing what I was going to knit her for Christmas. Anyway, my shrug will be worn. The rib is all in a nice darkblue and the inside is a light blue, it actually looks really nice, plain but nice. My thanks to Nicky to assistance with the colour changes. There might even be a photo of me wearing this tomorrow, shock, horror, lol!
