My husband is getting a new hip, & will be in the hospital during New Year's Day! I had to pick up a new project for some hospital knitting. Wanted something that I didn't have to think about too much. I originally thought of a shawl, but found a nice looking shrug pattern on lion brand website (free pattern).
It is the harvest shrug, I'm making it with with their fisherman yarn in birch coolest. I think I might add sleeves. I did frog it once after reading the ravelry comments, it looked too large, so I am knitting on 7 needles now!
