Having finished another UFO by the name of Crickets Sing For Anamaria, I decided to crochet a gift for my new BFF (best friend forever: Penny). I knew I could kick this out quickly, hoping to see her before I have to return the car. Actually, now that I think of it, I will continue to see her two days a week thanks to my generous cousin, but it’s doubtful I will see Penny on her birthday due to transportation issues.

Anyway, Penny told me her favorite color was yellow. I showed her yarn samples from my stash that I had available and to my surprise she picked the brighter color…YAY! I had done a search online for a shrug pattern, figuring following a pattern would be faster than trying to come up with something out of my head that I would like. I happened to find Sonata Shrug on Ravelry and liked it much. The pattern calls for sock, but I though the sport weight would work well enough. The only thing that might have made it drape more would be a bigger hook – US K – 6.5 mm. Oh well! I still love it.

The project name – Canary In A Coalmine by The Police – correlates to the color.
