Madam inspired

I have decided to knit my mother a Burnham Wood Capelet for when we go to visit her in April (I better not dawdle!). I was inspired to give cables a go again by a couple of Mary's recent projects.



I'm knitting this with Bendigo Woollen Mills Cameo from the famous backroom at the mill. This is a fabulous soft blend of wool and angora. Probably not the best yarn to give good cable definition but it will feel great against the skin. It also happens to be in my mother's favourite colour. It doesn't look like it in the photo, but the colour is a lovely soft blue.

Oh, and I have also put my hand up for a test knit - just for a bit of cable relief. But more of that later.

I always love your lace and your cables are beautiful as well!
Can't wait to see this project finished.

It does look gorgeous and I can see the cables quite well!

That looks so soft and snuggly! Are you sure it wasn't for me? LOL

I've heard of this back room...

Lovely and warm I'm sure!
