Ivory capelet

Capelet, mixed fibers, size 13 cable needle, 16 in.

I was worried a bit about the choice of yarns, but when I bound off this morning and put this on myself, I became very pleased.

I used it as an excuse to shop at the charming Sip and Knit shop in Orlando (Maitland), and bought lots of balls in these colors. I'm going to do several variations in this combination of yarns.

I like using the 16in cable needle because I can then make quite a small neckline without going to double pointed needles to finish. I'm not very fond of the larger necklines for myself because of the way they look on me, but I have made several for other people.
