I've been waiting a while to show you this capelet. I knit it for my mother, but since she reads my blog, you had to wait till it was delivered. It was her birthday last week and now I can assume it is draped over her shoulders, helping to keep her warm.
The pattern is from the book Winter Warmers by Red Heart. It contains 13 Easy to Knit and Crochet Accessories. There is a crocodile stitch scarf and some cabled mittens that I want to stitch.
My second wingspan scarf/shawl if completed. It is knit from two balls of Tarantella from Elann.com. This one is for myself. It can be worn as either a scarf, or more loosely draped around the shoulders and secured with a shawl pin.
Red Heart Checkerboard Textures Throw Crochet Along. It features a combination of large granny squares and textured blocks. I am planning to use this variegated yarn for the granny squares, and then use some co-ordinating solids for the others.
I'm still working on the dress for daughter. Had to do some re-stitching in the bust area, but that is now resolved and have a facing to stitch down and then the hem. yippee.
For those experiencing the current cold snap, how are you keeping warm? And for those in the much warmer portions of the world, I hope that you are safe from the wild fires raging in too many areas, what are you doing to keep cool?
Leave a comment and then add your link to Mr. Linky. I'd love to visit with you and check out your current needlework.
