When it was Mothers Day and I coerced Mr C into taking some pics of my Ruffly shawl I figured I might as well get all the finished articles photographed at the same time. So here we have this little capelet whatsit knitted in Kid Silk Aura (the whole range is now discontinued. Boo hiss)
|What a smarmy, snug looking face. Makes me want to Schlap it!!|
It was such an easy pattern and I reckon this only took a week to knit up but I cheated on it with other projects so it took me about four months from start to finish. I listed in my Wips here.
I quite like this Caplet, it's warm and soft and was a joy to knit but it's a tricky one to wear when there's a baby (pre toddler) to be carried as I did the cast on edge a bit tight and so it rolls up when I move around. It's also unflattering around the band and highlights my flared ribs. They got pushed out with each pregnancy and haven't retracted back. Maybe they never will. Don't really care if I'm honest!
I intend to knit another in black as I think that will be a useful thing to have in my wardrobe for all those nice candle lit suppers I don't have in nice restaurants I don't go to. I've always been a bugger for aspirational clothes shopping and now I'm aspirationally knitting. You know what I mean don't you? I buy clothes for the life style, weather, size I wish I had rather than the one I actually have. I know I'm not alone. A few of my friends have confessed to having more size ten summer clothes that are dry clean only than they care to count.
And that's the end of the sensible photographs, it all went a bit silly so here are the outtakes:
|Bee, I look like Pete the Dragon, No?!|
The final thing I rather like about this woolly item is it makes my knockers look rather substantial. Hurray for that!
ps. You have been spared the big old moony shot. Just kidding. I didn't moon. The kids were around!
