So, I was cruising around the comments and other’s blogs and links let to links and I ran into this:
I want to make this.
It is a capelet.
I hope you see my dilemma.
I’m against ponchos in all their variations. I walk around in jeans and band t-shirts most days, or things with pirates, skulls, and sea creatures on them. These items do no scream “Yes, please, toss a capelet on over me, it will look FAB.” Even trying to fit into the librarian chic genre, I don’t see how I could ever pull off wearing this in public without running around, arms extended, pretending to fly. I don’t even look that good in green! (I know, I could make it another color, but isn’t the green pretty?) Somehow that is not stopping me from desperately wanting to knit this.
Also, looking through all my scrap yarn, I ran into a swatch I had done ages ago in linen stitch with some leftover beige from a Doctor Who scarf and thought, now that would make an adorable sweater vest. So obviously that’s one of my next projects. Now to buy cute little collared shirts to wear under it…(Drunken Argyle is looking great and making me want one for myself.)
