I knit it, but can I put the pieces together?

One of the craft goals I had for myself this year was to learn to knit AND to knit something for myself.

Well, I've met half that goal. Thanks to Lara, I taught myself to knit using her version of Christine's baby booties.

So, having conquered that I was emboldened to try this Fisherman's Shrug (you have to register at Lion Brand's site for pattern access).

So, I bought the yarn called for in a pretty pumpkin color. I have all of the pieces made and I'm stuck on how to put it together. So, hopefully Lara will be able to help me again when we get together for our Wednesday crafting lunch.

If we get it figured out, perhaps a photo will be in order for Photo Friday.
