Alpaca and silk

Capelet, alpaca/silk blend; seed stitch, size 7 cable needle, 24 in.

I'm enjoying the richness of this red along with the smooth softness of the alpaca and silk blend of fibers in the yarn.  I'm sorry that no one is making it anymore, but I'm glad I have enough to finish at least one more piece! This capelet will be about 14 in. long, with a bottom circumference of about 50 inches and circumference at the neckline of about 22 in.  At this point I don't know if I'll have enough yarn to do much embellishment, but when I'm finished with the body of the piece I'll see if there is enough to make a trim of any kind.
