Last year in like February/March, I joined the lovely BF on a work trip to Louisiana. While he worked on satellite modems, I ventured out and found a cute little YS and fell madly in love with Cascade's Venezia in color 122 (bubblegum!) http://www.cascadeyarns.com/cascade-Venezia.asp
But at like $16 a skein, I only got one.
Fast forward to like April. Both skeins are still there, having had nothing more done to them but fondling and lovingly petting. Then I found a lot of 6 more skeins on Ebay for $40. I bought it.
In June I started the anthropologie capelet. Now it's September, I haven't even finished all the raglan increases. I haven't touched it in months.
I LOVE the yarn, I am just "ehhh" about making a capelet out of it. I don't really know why, I know it would look super cute. I just don't know that it would look super cute *on me*.
The first capelet I made was a mess. I knit it to wear over my dress at prom since I didn't figure a chaperone should have bare shoulders. I didn't like it but I was out of options to make or buy another one at the last minute. Fortunately the lighting was dark... It was so bad I won't even post pictures on here. So I think I may just be gun shy of the pattern now.
So my poor lovely yarn has been sitting... and sitting... and sitting... waiting on me to figure out what to make of it.
Cascade has a pattern for a cardigan but I dunno if it really does the yarn justice. Or maybe it's because their picture is weird and blurry.
I was thinking maybe a circle shrug.
What do y'all think? I'm a curvy girl with ample endowments in the boobal area. I'm not the most proficient knitter (haven't figure out cables but I can follow patterns, knit in the round, etc...)
