Remember this project? Well, it’s now finished and keeping me warm. Here’s another picture from the magazine:
The second picture shows the shoulder joining, which is tied with a pretty ribbon. However, I wasn’t too sure about that ribbon, so on my version, I plaited some of the yarn I had spun previously, like this:
I started my newest knitting project the other day. It is going to be a cape as shown in ‘Jane Austen Knits’. I think it looks really pretty and I knew I had just the yarn for the base of it.
Here is the pattern:
As you can see the base is a thick brown worsted yarn – just right for warmth and the overlay is a fluffy mohair in a gorgeous lacey pattern. The handspun yarn I made myself last October is just right for the base:
But I’m not sure about the colour of the lacey top layer. I think I may choose a light beige to do that. What do you think?
