Replacement knitting

My friend (and bridesmaid) Jenn is off to live in Nepal again soon, and was hoping to take with her the shrug I made to match her bridesmaid dress last summer. So in preparations for setting off, she popped it in the washing machine and forgot that hot water and agitation is NOT the best friend of animal fibres.

So here I go, making her a new one in her signature colour of hot pink to match the legwarmers and gloves I also put together for her last year. I think I'll be making one great big clothing care label to go with it, before I'm able to give it to her in person next weekend at our friend Sarah's wedding.
