Joining Ginny this Wednesday for my very first Yarn Along post.
I am currently approaching the grand finale of War and Peace. I must say, I am enjoying this massive piece of literature, and am totally engrossed in the personal story lines and development of the characters and their love interests. However, tackling the intense descriptions of various battles is somewhat a harder undertaking.
I just recently completed my third Cabled Capelet and so will be using the pictures for this post. The pattern I used came with the yarn, and is very easy and relaxing to knit, with the cabled section showing up quite nicely.
My first attempt didn’t turn out, due to the lack of right needles for the cowl (for some strange reason I couldn’t find US 13 (9mm) double-pointed needles in the stores and had to order online) and not decreasing the correct number of stitches around.
I have since then made two more capelets, each in a different colour: one as a belated Christmas present for my Mom, and the other for my Aunt Ali. The one featured here is Aunt Ali’s, though Mom is also pictured in hers.
