That great line, “between genius… and hobo”, came from my friend Mary when I created this shrug and put it on. She said, “It looks like on Tom and Jerry when there’s an explosion and someone loses half a shirt.” She is not the only one who has tried to save me from embarrassment of wearing it out in public. Sometimes I wear it to yoga. Truth be told, I was crafting under influence during a weekend away with some girlfriends. Part of the fondness for this beauty is attached to the memory of its creation. It started as Nancy’s hand-me-down sweater, which became this shrug and a cowl/scarf that Erin wore that night. That was one of the last times I saw Nancy before she move away.
So this project might count as a mess… I recently got a book by Keri Smith, by the same name.
