Not retro redux shrug

This is my first time posting and the first item I've knitted from Lace Style. I am afraid I made a mistake while reading the pattern and put 2 knits after each yo, ssk. I didn't realize until I had bound off! I couldn't figure out why my shrug pattern was so different than that shown in the book. Oh well, I think it still looks nice. I used Knit Picks Shine worsted in blush. I really like all the patterns in this book. Living in Florida makes it hard to wear any thing knitted. These lace patterns are just great for the balmy weather we have here. I plan my next project from the book
to be the Shetland Shawl Turned Vest. I have Shine Sport in sand for that. Maybe this time I'll get the pattern right! Terry G

I think it looks great!! Who cares about the deviation from the pattern-- and the yarn knitted up really nicely. I've tried Shine Worsted and felt pretty neutral about it, but I'm impressed with how nice it looks in a lace pattern.
