The beet capelet is amazing and how awesome that your sister has an asparagus tattoo!

Handmade and vintage goodness!

When I first saw the pictures, I too thought "Huh, a lover of Jitterbug Perfume?"  I am so happy to be right, one of my all time favorite books.  And lovely, lovely work on that capelet!  Pan would be all teary-eyed....

You know, I read that book (all of his books actually) and loved it but this didn't make me think of it one bit. Not that that's a bad thing, I was entirely overwhelmed by my absolute love of this garment on it's own. It's wonderful that it represents a fantastic novel but it doesn't matter a bit if the viewer doesn't get the reference. This is just stunning. Best.Sister.Ever indeed. Wish I had a sister like you!

I think that, considering the detail and overall feel of the piece, more detail like the gold french knots and the garnet coloured beads, a bee or two, a bracelet to represent the other elements mentioned... it would all just add to it. More to see, especially those subtle touches, would round everything off. The thing is, people are going to flock to see this thing. Might as well give them some tiny lookables to keep them gaga once they get close!

Oh, and I can't believe that it's fleece either, it looks like wool. It's just awesome.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

that's beautiful and unique and wonderful.
personally, i cast a vote for no pollen. maybe a little dirt? i could go for that.
the workmanship looks perfect and the colors? are amazing.

I'm another Tom Robbins fan.  I get very excited about beets in general and this capelet it just darling!  It's the sort of thing I would put on and go walk around downtown, just so everyone could admire it.  Wonderful work.

My toes are cold.

Jitterbug Perfume is my favorite book too!! I've read it at least 25 times..

I love the capelet and I want to steal the idea.   I think the french knots would be beautiful.  I like the bracelet idea too.

What about a little knit scarf in green yarn (matching the beet leaves) with yellow "pollen poofs" and jasmine flowers and bees.. might be cute..
