Capelet progress

A rather washed-out photo of the capelet progress, two lace repeats now done (bar one row):



Just started the second ball of aran tweed, it made a lovely and invisible felted join.

Here's the knitting needle case I mentioned last week. It holds all of my 3mm to 7mm straights, my DPNs (you will see I have very few DPNs!) and all of my Addi circulars. I'm really impressed with it, it is beautifully made and has so many pockets for circs and DPNs. I have multiple pairs of 4mm and 4.5mm needles in there.

I bught this from EHwa Aprons on ebay who were extremely fast to ship from the US.

You're going great guns on the capelet already and I love the way it's turning out.

Yep, I may well have to have one of those needle cases. It's so pretty and very practical.

Is it me or are we all a bit obsessed at the mo? Love it :)

Hmm, I've been thinking of making that capelet - yours is looking good.
I drool at your new silk yarns and needle case. Droooollllll. Just as well I am on the other side of the world, though if the sea levels rise suddenly, you know why!

What a lovely needle case. I must have a ponder on getting a new one. I still use a red vinyl (yuk) one I had as a birthday present about thirty years ago!

Oww, that's coming along nicely!

When I made mine I wish I had used a softer yarn, hope you'll like the finished fabric (I also used DB Aran Tweed but thought it was too scratchy to be worn against the skin).

Hope you're having a good weekend xxx

The capelet looks great too, and the heart scarf. I'm catching up sorry!
