Finally, finally, finally finished! I tells you what, peoples, this capelet was an exercise in cables. And then some. I was trucking along pretty well, but then fell over on the yoke, which was full of short rows. No matter how much I knitted, the darn yoke never seemed to grow. But I sucked it up and got there in the end. A lesson in cables AND patience. Whoo!
As you can probably tell from the pics, Tyger is rather chuffed with it. It may not have gotten finished for her birthday (what was I thinking?!? Good grief!) but it's done for her Book Week parade tomorrow, and since she's going as Anne of Green Gables again, she's thrilled.
Pattern: Sirdar 1386 - Hooded Cape and Cape
Yarn: 6 balls of Woolganics Organic Merino DK in Chili Pepper (from stash - YES!!!)
Needles: 3.25 circular needle, 4mm circular needle, 3.25mm straight needle, 4mm straight needle
Loved working again with this yarn - I had used it previously for Tyger's red dress. Plus it's always nice to use up a bit of the stash. Makes room for more yarn (Galumph, I hope you didn't read that. Ahem!)
The only thing I don't like is that I cast off my front ribs a little bit too loosely. I might unravel those and redo them a bit tighter. Apart from that I'm happy with how this has turned out. And Tyger informs me it's lovely and warm and snuggly to wear. Win win all around!
