Minta Durfee Shrug

My friend was in the middle of knitting this cute shrug pattern when the blog that was hosting it fell off the internet. I managed to get a snapshot from the Google cache and save the pattern into a .pdf. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do this.

The shrug is a re-write of a 1912 pattern for modern knitters by Elizabeth F. It's knit flat with worsted weight yarn and then seamed under the arms.

The [original Ravelry info] is still up.

Filk-lesque: one of those annoying blend portmanteaux that describes what I've been doing all year. I perform musical acts of an often nerdy bent at burlesque, variety, and cabaret-style shows in Raleigh, and the rest of the Triangle and Triad. I usually perform in clown-style full face makeup, but I've also appeared in my own skin and in drag!

Check out my [videos and music]!

There are also TONS of pictures on my performer Facebook page and a list of upcoming shows.
