  1. Ha Ha I typed your name into Goggle Images and your website picture popped up. Love you hunny. The page is looking good.

  2. confused by after 35 inches. Can follow K1 row, then p1 row, but when it says to k2tog and then the p not sure if I should do a whole row of k2tog and then a row of p? Please clarify because the pattern looks interesting and I'd like to try it :) Thanks

    1. I have corrected the pattern to make it more clear. Thank you for the input!

  3. I, too, am planning on knitting this shrug and have some questions about the size of needle used:
    Is the initial increase to double the stitches to 120 stitches done with size 9 or ll needles?
    What size needles are used for the block pattern?
    I am assuming that you start and end with size 9 needles and use size 11's in-between after the pattern tells you to switch....correct?
