Ribbed Lace Bolero

T turns 20! Happy Birthday to you my April 1st girl!

Pattern: Ribbed Lace Shrug by Kelly Maher (published free on her 10 Feet High website.)
Yarn: Cotton Ease in taupe (1 + a smidge of 2nd skein)

The shrug fit at first, but kept growing as she wore it. Apparently this yarn and lace pattern
combined are very stretchy! I think a wash and dry in the machine will help.

When she saw it, T the fashionista said, "Shrugs and boleros are out!" But she seemed to be
happy to wear it. Also, I don't think she's visited the yarn stores and websites, where shrugs abound!!! This pattern has been made 431 times by Ravelers (so far) and is in 1592 queues!
