I recently completed the Recycling/Eco-Friendly/Gardening/Hippie Swap, with RangerBeth as my partner Cheesy Her Wist was full of cute, feminine, vaguely Victorian goodies, so I made her a swingy springtime capelet using a very old pattern I found via Ravelry:

The pink is Phentex Merit and the astoundingly intense green is from a sweater I hated the cut of and consequently never wore. I did the yoke in double crochet instead of star stitch and lengthened both the yoke and the bottom of the cape. It took awhile, but I'm so happy with results, I just may have to make one for myself!

That looks just the thing for a cool spring evening, nicely warming.
