Finally finished the capelet. Here it is..
and again in detail on my ironing board..
I think it's really pretty. I tried to take a phooto of me wearing it by seting the timer on the camera, but all the pictures were fuzzy. This will have to do I guess.
I also completed these squares. They are 6x6 inches and meant for the BASIS exchange. I don't know whether I will send both to Laurie. I guess I'll wait and see if I make any more squares before I decide.

Let's see, what else have I been doing? Knitting-wise, not much.
I plan on writing out the pattern for the capelet to share, but I don't know whether anyone wants it. If you want it leave me a message and I'll write it out. Otherwise, I won't bother.
I have a busy weekend coming up, and I doubt I will get much knitting done. On Saturday I will be meeting with my Buyer Behaviour project group to finalise our presenttion slides. After that I will be dropping off Nanna's faux tortoiseshell needles which I bought in Canberra a couple of months ago. Yes yes, I know.. I should have dropped them off by now. After that I have to rush over to Chipping Norton for Bri's tupperware party/kitchen tea followed by Bri's hen's night. I can't believe the wedding is only a few weeks away. It seems ike only a few months ago that she announced her engagement. Actually it was last year, but time flies.
Aaaanyway, back to knitting, I need a new project. I am considering a lace shawl in some of the mohair that Mos bought for me in Poland. Also need to reknit part of the sleeves for my Huntington Castle. I am SO dreading that task. Also on the list is a cow potholder. I plan on doing it in double knitting. The pattern is here: http://www.countrydoubles.com/cowpattern.html
Isn't it gorgeous!
Let's see, what else do I want to make? mm.. so many projects, indecision! Alright, I am off to find some of that yummy mohair in my stash. I think it will make a gorgeous shawl.
