FO: Dream Week simple shrug

Anne Brown's simple shrug pattern wowed everyone last week - it's a simple strip of knitting, approx. 800 rows, steamed and sewn in a few places. I think these would make great Christmas presents too. I panicked a bit on the day - the class notes said not a natural yarn, Grigna would be great. I'd no idea what Grigna looked like - labels fall off cones in my house - so grabbed a cone of Uppinghams baby 4ply acrylic. As it turned out, it was perfect! After knitting I got to kill it, too, which is normally only done by mistake! :)
