So it would appear that I am the laziest person ever.

I finished my first version of this some tim in January this year:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62281.msg706408#msg706408

And as I recall, finished my second version about two weeks later, but never got around to taking photos or posting them.  I wore the capelet out to breakfast today and I thought "better late than never" so here are the pictures.

It's knit with 2 strands of a 4 ply merino (I think), handpainted by Marta's Yarns.

On me:



On the hanger front (I actually store it flat):



Back:



Artsy shot:



Hmm, the colours don't look very vibrant.  The colour looks a lot better in real life, I'd say closest to the in focus bits of the last shot.

Enjoy!

If we're all thinking outside the box, doesn't that just put us in a bigger box?

Finally made a worsted weight version of this thing, and I think it came out quite nicely. I was going to wear it to Thanksgiving, but alas, it was a bit chilly for short sleeves.

That's a very nice shade of green.  All of these are so nice.  I like to see the different variations!

Lexer, that looks really nice!  Now I will have to do one in worsted weight, I guess....  Cheesy 

Which yarn did you use and how much?

For myself, but isn't so fabulous.  The back acts up and my arms are too fat. ;( So any tall, skinny amazons are welcome to have it.


Isn't it funny how projects gone bad get into your mind and act like "The Tell Tale Heart"?  Or Lisa Simpson's diorama in that 'Simpsons' episode?


For my little cousin on the way.  Love it!

FIERCE!
