Capelet

My Burnham Wood Capelet is finally done. And although I'm quite pleased with the end result, I am afraid that it will be too small for my mother. That probably means that I will just have to wear it. I think I can cope with that.






I knitted this with Bendigo Woollen Mills Cameo. This is one of those yarns you find in the famous backroom. This is a fabulously soft yarn but does shed like crazy while knitting with it. After I washed and blocked the capelet I wasn't aware of anymore shedding. I hope it stays that way.

Now I'm going to be saying goodbye for a while. I'm traveling to South Africa and Europe for the next 2 months and I think my internet connection will be rather intermittent. I will try and keep up with your blogs while I am away and if I get a chance to post here I will do so.

It's beautiful Amanda! No wonder you don't mind keeping it for yourself if it doesn't fit your mum.
Have a safe trip.

oh it's lovely! I think you have made me reconsider my previously held belief that there was no place for a capelet in my life. I see them quite differently now!

Very lovely caplet! I think it looks so elegant and yet comfy. I might have to put the pattern in my queue!
