I was really nervous about when I got to the part where I knew I was going to start decreasing. I had never done it before and I was treating each row differently than I was in the beginning. I was stopping each color two stitches before it reached the new one. I found it was easier to keep the tension more even. I knew I would have to do it while alone so I could concentrate.
Hopefully I will be able to show pictures soon of the finished shrug and hat. The hat is soaking now, but I know it won't take long to dry. The shrug is dry, but it has been raining like crazy in my area, so that isn't the best for pictures. It says rain tomorrow too, but I'm hoping to get some moments of sun and no more tornado warnings.
