Bendigo Shrug

I love Barbara Walker's Knitting from the top book :-)
I made this shrug/bolero following her directions for the Classic Raglan Cardigan...the book was really easy to follow, and I'm really happy with this first project.
I used just under one 200g ball of Bendigo Colonial 8ply.
It feels nice and light to wear, and will be great now that summer is here :-)
(Don't you just love this back view shot?!...ha, it was the best I could do today :-D)

.....some work in progress piccies...

That is one gorgeous shrug! So teensy and shruggy! The colour really suits as well!

I like the shrug! Did you find it easier to get the right fit, knitting top down?
