Here she is!

I'm about half-way through the back of the shrug. I'm using the Silk/Merino handpaint I bought from Over the Rainbow Yarns. The vendor calls it a worsted, and it did give me 5st/in on size 7s, but it was an airy and drapey fabric, so I'm doing this on size 5s at 5.75 st/in, which gives me a nice stretchy fabric.

Since it's a handpaint, there's some variation between the skeins (the green and pink is much more prominent in some of them), so I'm doing the swap skeins every two rows thing.

That colorway is beautiful! It really looks great. :)
