Hey everyone Cheesy
I found this cute pattern for a basic baby dress-so I thought I'd use some of my soft yarn that has been sitting around for ages to finally make something....
A few things went wrong.
The pattern said it would use less than one skein-I ran out and only had one of that colour.
As I kept going it began to look less and less like a dress and a lot larger than I thought it would be.....
So I decided to change it to a little capelet.
Sure, she won't be able to wear it for a very very long time.......But I have much more time to craft now than I will then! Cheesy
And just because I was bored I whipped up a matching beanie...

Thanks for looking Cheesy

I really like it, so many of my projects start off as one thing and turn out another  Grin

there's something wrong with me...i'm a cuckoo!

A one-skein dress, eh?  Promises, promises!  Tongue

You made an excellent little capelet, though.  Those are SO useful around my house (we keep the thermostat down around here.

The beanie's cute too!  Cheesy

No more blog + no more facebook = more time for crafting!

I'm also JenGoPop at Ravelry.
