131  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Anthropologie-inspired capelet + Tutorial! on: February 27, 2007 06:06:23 AM
Hi All- OK, so I'm a little late to this thread, but I love this capelet and I'm a new knitter so it took me a while.  but here are my two versions:  (since I'm so new, it has to be links, sorry)



Capelet #1, the blue and purple one uses Berroco Foliage, color 5990, on size 11 circular needles.  I followed the pattern exactly.

Capelet #2, the pink and green one, uses Patagonia hand dyed cotton, color 215, on size 11 circular needles.  I added to the garter stitch on the front edges of each side. so it was k4 on each end.

Thanks so much for posting the pattern, and everyone for posting their varieties, and giving me the inspiration.  These are my first wearable objects other than scarves and hats.  Smiley  Marykz

Cloverly/ Burtonsville MD.  (Eastern Montgomery County- not far from Laurel...)  I just visited Fiberworks in Ashton- very nice.  I don't like the JoAnn's much in Laurel, but it is ok if you know what you need.  I go to Michael's all the time on Rt 1.  I've been known to go up to the one in Columbia occasionally, and want to check out All About Yarn there one of these days.  Knit on!  Marykz

That totally cracks me up!  I love it!! my daughter asked me to make a Blooo.  I figured it shouldn't be so hard, right?  Anyweays- great job! Marykz

"i have tension issues too. you can cast on with the two needles together and then just slide one of them out. then there's no need to transfer your piece. Wink

Oooohhhhhhhh!  Brilliant!  I'm a new knitter and never heard about the two needle cast on.  That would help me a lot.  Thank you!! Marykz

This is really great and thanks so much for the link to the pattern.  I'm definitely going to make this- I was just looking through lots of patterns for a nice tank and I love this one!  Mary Z

I dig the purple/ green lacy socks!  and I really like the scarf/ hat combo- the scarf looks so comfy and warm!  MKZ

if you needed a larger quantity that all said the same thing, Colorful Images sells personalizable tags like these:

they have 4 or 5 different designs.  my mom uses them when she makes gifts or doll clothes so that the person understands what a treasure they are getting....

40 labels for about $12 + shipping.

If I ever get good at this knitting thing, I'm going to order some.  Smiley

I am also a newbie knitter and I am finally making peace with the issue of having to take it out and start over.  Really- it's ok!  happy knitting, Marykz
p.s. definitely bookmark knittinghelp.com for yourself- really easy to understand videos, and good free beginner patterns.

Yes! I think this is a fabulous idea.  I'm a beginner, and have a lovely wool scarf to share with my favorite charity.  I emailed you this morning according to the instructions on your blog.  Thanks!!! Mary Z
