Cocoon Shrug

I am making some progress on my cocoon shrug. I have been told that I might be the first one from the class to get it finished! I am amazed that some of the other people I had class with haven't finished yet.

I am getting antsy to get it finished. I have made a modification in the pattern with the sleeves. I decided to make some strategic decreases so it is more form fitting to my arm instead of the one large tube that the pattern calls for. I like the decreases much better.

I am beginning to feel like I am never going to get it finished. I guess it is because most of the knitting that I have been doing you decrease as you go along. This pattern you are increasing so it makes every other round longer. I am trying to be patient and not get discouraged. I really like how it is turning out. I think that part of the problem is I want it done so I can take it and show it off. I guess it is better to make progress and feel like you are making progress than to feel like you are getting no where fast.

I will leave you with a few more pictures of my progress.
