Finished with different wool

I wrote previously about a shrug I was knitting for my daughter.  The shrug was one that she had started and didn’t have the time to finish.

I have finally finished the shrug but I was not happy with it.  I did not have enough wool to complete the project and could find no wool of a similar colour to finish it off.  I went with a tweed style wool for the border but I don’t like the finished result.  Fortunately my daughter is happy with it so that is good.  I think it would look so much nicer if it was all the same colour.

It is hard to get a photo to show how it looks if you don’t have someone inside the shrug!

Here is a picture of how it should look.The pattern was from Patons book 1255.
