JAM 5: Another TSW eShrug

I've really enjoyed wearing the black eShrug I made earlier this year. It's the perfect little cover-up when traveling and has gone on several trips with me.

Incredibly, I recently found a pretty print sweater knit in Joann's bargain section. I bought it to prototype with since the wool/rayon I bought at Santa Fe Fabrics last winter was too pricy to use with an untried pattern. Well, it didn't work out that way, because I ended up using the Joann's knit for another eShrug instead.

 I'm still getting used to seeing the reverse side due to the drapey lapels, but I have a lot of purples and greens I can wear this with now that it's cooler. I've been sitting on this one since September 11, when I made it as a respite from the unending 10th anniversary coverage but it's been too hot for it until recently.
