After finishing the grey cardigan (well it still needs a bath and to have the buttons added), I started this little capelette.
I will be fun. I'm now in a race against the weather. This is a top down, turtleneck, elbow length cape.
There are wide, chunky cables down the center front and back. I did make a mistake on the second cable - I made it move right instead of left - so I made it a design feature and am alternating the cable direction every other time.
Since taking these pictures, I've finished the second hank of yarn and the 5th cable. I'm getting closer to being done.
The yarn is malabrigo rios and it's lovely, thick, and spoingy. The color is a fabulous green with a bit of blue and grey.
Now to figure out what to wear it with - jeans and tee? Maybe a dress? Denim skirt and a tee - yep, think that's it.
Well it's on hold now until I can make it to the local yarn store. See Wednesdays are knit nights and we get a 10% discount on any purchases made during knit night. It's not alot, but it saves the tax. And that all add up, right?
