i just finished my gauge swatch in a pretty blue peruvian collection highland wool that i got from elann last year.  (last year's failed christmas poncho for mom turns into this year's christmas caplet for mom)  i doubled up the yarn for extra thickness and i'm super excited to cast on!!

also, great job kinkyknit.  even more inspiration.  ps. i love your mustachioed kitty cat.

Take note, wokeupafraud: I ordered yarn from KnitPicks to do this capelet -- 2 skeins (hopefully it's enough) of Sierra, which looks to be a close match to the Rowan Polar used in the original pattern, as it's a bulky alpaca/wool blend. And it's only $4.49 a ball! And shipping was only about $3.

The Sierra is backordered until 11/25, but as soon as my package arrives, I'm SO in on this KAL.

Hi y'all, I decided to do this in Bernat Softee Chunky, in Black, since I have ocens of it from my Circular Shrug Fiasco. I would rather do it in white, but you can't always get what you want.

and wokeupafraud, I am so dead broke, I decided not to buy yarn... I don't what i was thinking when i said I would buy some, wishful thinking i guess!

Sigh Sad

I've finished mine, and it looks great! I knit it in Cleckheaton Country 100% merino (a fairly generic yarn, but I live in a small town and yarn varieties are extremely limited). It's blocking right now, but when it's dry (dry, you sucker, dry!) I'll have a picture to post!

I've started mine using JoAnn Sensations yarn "Dolcetto" in pink. It's a wool/cotton blend that is super light and fluffy. 130 yards and only 1 3/4 ounces. If I don't have to rip anything out I should be done tommorow. It really is a quick knit project.

Really, this pattern could not have come along at a better time. I'm going to a wedding tomorrow... and guess what I'm wearing?



Please ignore the blurriness of the photo- I had to use the auto-timer, and it's not the best. Please also ignore the fact that this photo makes me look about 40 years old.

A close up-



The clasp is actually a hair clip. Also pictured- my sunburn.

This is such a great pattern. Pretty, fast, easy to knit... could one ask for anything more? (Well, I suppose it could come with margueritas and cabana boys...)

I changed my mind  Roll Eyes because I found the perfect yarn in my bsmt! Yay! I am now using Phentex Super Size Chunky in Aran( a creamy white) and since it $7.99 (for a skein of 454g!750yds per skein!) This is probably only going to cost me 3.50 at most... I heart cheap yarn...
