A friend of mine got married over the weekend. It was a perfect day for a wedding (i.e. not 95* out like our wedding day). About 10 days before the wedding, she asked how quickly I could whip up a shrug for her to wear later in the evening. Mind you the forecast for the weekend before her wedding was 85* and sunny, I was doubtful she would really need one. However, I knew it wouldn't take much time and that I could make it in a color other than white so she could wear it again.
I was able to score some super nice yarn at my local yarn shop, which is going out of business (waaahhh!!), at a great price. I used THIS pattern I found on Ravelry as my starting point. I toned the collar down a bit and added a gentle wave pattern to the bottom of the shrug in the back. I think it turned out pretty well, although it was too big. She's so tiny that I tried to guesstimate how small she is, but I still didn't go small enough.
The only pictures I have to share of it so far are ones I took from Facebook because I was silly and didn't take any pictures before I gave it to her and I didn't really take any pictures at the wedding.
Here's a view of the back:
