Final lace capelet entry

Pattern: Lace Capelet by Mary Heather
Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze "Jelly" purchased at SWAK in Guthrie, Oklahoma in March 2006
Needles: Clover Bamboo circular needles, Size 10.5 (US) for knitting and Size 11 for casting off
Started: 2/9/07
Finished: 2/18/07

I used a little under 1 ball of the Jelly Kidsilk Haze (Rowan). This is my fourth capelet and it's free of the mistakes I made in my first one (i.e. primarily a "too tight" bind off at the neck). The laceweight mohair blend has so much warmth even with a lacy, open pattern -- I love it. I've blocked the capelet (steam only) since I took the photo yesterday and the bottom no longer curls up and my stitches have evened out a bit too.

For now, I'll you with a mystery felted project created with one of my two favorite felting yarns - Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride. The fuchsia color is amazing and now I'm inspired to knit a swatch with it to brainstorm something else I want to knit. Here's a hint.

ooh pretty color combination. reminds me of an orchid.
I love the sarah dallas book. if you're planning on knitting a strip blanket it should be a lot of fun and a great way to play with color.

The capelet turned out beautiful, and I love the color.

LOVE the capelet and the lime-y color!

The capelet is lovely! Hmm, did you make a basket? A small pet bed?

What glorious colors! Fuschia always makes me happy. The capelet turned out really well.

So, so pretty. Thanks for your beautiful capelets, Janet! LOVE this color - so cheery!

The capelets are so pretty.

OMG I totally want to make that blanket too!! Alison's knits are so amazing and inspiring.

But back to you... I don't know what's more beautiful... your knitting, or the way you photograph it. It really shows it off, and it shows me what a difference a great shot can make.

I can't wait to see your blanket!

it is so dainty! And I thought you should know Debbie Macomber has another knitting book coming out in March. Miss you. :-)

Beautiful knitting and photography Janet - as usual! x

Pretty cape, that color is so yummy!
