Keeping warm

I love capelets! Love them! So I whipped one out from Wrap Style:



It is a simple wrap, and it has its flaws, such as the bottom edge rolling up in an unflattering way. It was a great introduction, and the yarn was yummy to knit with.

Pattern: Eyelet Capelet from Wrap Style

Yarn: Online Linie 157 Tessa, 50g, 5 skeins (or 6? I don't remember)

Needles: Boye #9 aluminum circulars

Notes: Lucky me, the gauge was spot-on, since I really wanted to make this pattern using this yarn. I followed the pattern to the letter, and really had fun with it! Once I gave the edges a light steam, they stayed put much nicer.

So pretty! I love capelets. Hate ponchos, love capelets because they're so much more elegant. It looks great on you!

Okay, you haven't posted in awhile.

Tag. You've been struck by the Seven Random Things About Me meme.

Love the capelet. I might have to make one of those for myself. It's sort of a sweater without the commitment issues.
