In the studio - black merino and cashmere

Capelet; merino wool and cashmere blend; stockinette stitch, size 6 cable needle, 24 in.;
original design

This yarn feels creamy and I enjoy the feel of it going through my fingers, although it does feel a little like knitting with rubber bands.  The size 6 needles make for a somewhat tight fabric, and I think due to the cashmere it will be a very warm capelet.  I have plenty of yarn, so I think I am going to keep going once I reach the final decrease for the neck and make a turtleneck.

I also know at this point that I want to make a fan crochet border at the bottom.  Maybe I'll ad a picot crochet border at the neck as well.
