Lastest FO


I love my most recent FO so much that I have to gush:

the girl at "Peony Knits" posted her version of an Anthropologie-inspired capelet for FREE on her website (as well as craftster.org). Here's the link to her page:

I never thought I was a shrug/capelet sort of girl, but this project has proven me wrong! It's so gorgeous, I've received numerous complements on it already. Since my working environment is very well air conditioned, such an item comes in useful, even in the summertime.
Mine looks just like hers in the photo. I didn't use Rowan Polar (because I couldn't find it at the store - Michaels - and I was so excited to make the pattern that I just grabbed the best substitute I could find). Mine is Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in the colour 'Fisherman'. I luckily had a cute pin to use as a closure at the top (an ebay purchase of a little bee - I love bees!)

So, in conclusion! If anyone is looking for a great, quick-knit shrug/capelet, this is the one for you!
