11  Jeepers Peepers Cape in Knitting: Completed Projects by ladylinoleum on: May 23, 2007 03:08:22 PM
Always trying to get a jump on the Halloween season here at ChezLinoleum. As such, there's nothing like a passel of felted bloodshot eyeballs to put me in the spirit of all things orange and black!

Presenting the Jeepers Peepers Cape...

This behemoth of knitdom was created using my favorite crunchy synthetic, Red Heart Super Saver, then adorned with a pile of felted balls.

It took me about 2 weeks (not working daily) and 1200 yards of acrylic to knit this puppy in stockinette stitch (with garter stitch border) from top to bottom. The points were worked individually. It 'twas actually a quick and easy knit for me as I knit continental and am a bit of a knitting speed demon.

In fact I think it took me longer to felt the eyeballs and hand sew them onto felt backing. Not to mention the fact that I then had to hand sew them onto the cape itself once backed. Yep, that took a while.

I like the effect though.

Now all I need is some matching headgear. No, wait. I've got it!


Yeah, definitely more to come...

...and there were THOUSANDS of ends to weave in. 

Next time, weave as you go by carrying along the end of the old color and crocheting over it with the new color.  It will make your life so much easier!  In crochet you should only have two ends to weave in no matter how many color changes:  the beginning and the end.
