I finished these two wraps recently; the capelet is for my friend and the shawl is for my sister.
This capelet was finished quickly because it was a lot of fun to make. There was no pattern, just a basic increasing lace diagram in an old book I have. I used about one skein (100 grams) of acrylic yarn from my stash. It's a little shorter than I'd like, but there you go.
I made this shawl for my sister- it took exactly two skeins, including the flower pin. It's been named 'Sergio Leone Shawl' because the stripes remind me of Clint Eastwood's poncho in 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly'. Kind of lame, I'm afraid.
It's also not as long as I'd like, but now I don't have to feel guilty about starting some new projects, since these are off the hook! (Lame pun! I couldn't help myself.)
