Hello all:

These are my knitting projects over the last couple of days:

(a) Moebius Capelet

Isn't the yarn fabulous?  It's Fleece Artist Grande Godiva (2 skeins). The pattern for the capelet is by Cat Bordhi and came with the yarn when I bought it for $2 extra.

This took about three hours to knit - I would say that one hour was spent trying to figure out to cast it on, which was frustrating...!!  But patience is its own reward (or is that "patience is a virtue"?  I can't remember.  I'm not a very patient person myself... Cheesy) It was fun and quick once I figured it out.

(b) Montego Bay scarf tunic

I made the Montego Bay scarf by Amy Singer (IK magazine, Summer 2007 issue) sometime in the summer, but never really wore it as I am scarf challenged and 80" of scarf around my neck ends up looking like a rainbow noose.

So, I decided to turn it into a tunic.

The original scarf was made with Handmaiden Sea Silk.  I then crocheted most of the side edges together, draped the end of the scarf over the left shoulder, and seamed it into place.

For more information and photos, come on over to my blog if you'd like:

These are beautiful! And I absolutely love what you did with the Montego Bay scarf. The asymmetry makes a great design element.
