The Anthrologie Inspired Capelet

As I promised here is a finished picture of the capelet. I am really pleased with the way this turned out. When I was knitting it I thought it was going to be small but it fits perfect.

Yarn: Blue Sky Alpaca, sport weight 100% alpaca (held doubled)
Color: Natural Dark Gray (509), 3 hanks
Size: Pattern is written for one size but it could
be easily modified by casting on more stitches.
Modifications: After I split the sleeves and body
the pattern says to knit 4 rows in reverse stockinette.
I knit for two inches because I was afraid that the top
would be too short. I'm glad I decided to make it longer.

I know that I said I was going to cut myself off from any future yarn purchases. Well, I might have to allow some exceptions at least for this weekend. Saturday Debbie and I are going to the 4th Annual Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival. It should be a good time, Annie Modesitt is going to be there. Well, it has been a long day I'm off to bed.
