Capelet FO

Tuesday afternoon, before my spinning class, the yarn I ordered to finish my anthropology inspired capelet (designed by Julsey) arrived. With only two armholes to finish, I zipped that project off the WIP list.

Last night I blocked out the fronts (which still want to curve in a bit; I really think it needed 4 stitches of garter stich at the edges rather than the 2 the pattern called for).

Overall, I think this will be a nice little warm addition to the decor of my new, rather cold, office.

Anthropology inspired capelet by Julsey
3 skeins of Knit Picks Sierra/Cadena (70% wool, 30% superfine alpaca)
in Natural
US size 10 1/2 circulars
cast on July 18, 2007
finished August 21, 2007

This morning, following the advice of my fab instructor John, I started my daily spinning practice.

I'm glad to say I remembered all the steps to get started and was able to create some nice, thin, fairly even singles today.

Yeah spinning! Yeah FOs.

p.s. Knitting progress continues on FiFi... pictures to come later.

The capelet looks great! I like it in the off-white color - will be very versatile!
