what i did on my vacation

it wasn't a real vacadion, just a blog vacation. actually, i was just busy with other store stuff.

1. I made 3 capelets from old T-shirts for the T-shirt show at Scratch Espresso (Gallery) for Art Walk last weekend. i probably should have blogged about them, but they hacen't sold yet and scratch is keeping the t-shirt show up, so you can go see them (of if you want you can buy one too!  they are verty affordably priced at $65.

2. at the same time i was working on a pattern for a thick wool cardi-jacket, something fast and easy for fall. i also madeu sure there was as little seaming as possible, especially around the armhole (shoulder and armhole seaming with bulky wools never seem to end with a happy story).


3. then i made a pattern based on the t-shirt buttoned capelet in real yarn. those capelets knitted up so fast and easy and look and feel so good! i wrote up the pattern, printed up copies for sale, loaded it to ravelry and the website for PDF downloads. anyway, the above model was made in Estelle Woolly Bully. I knew the lavender colourway would come out beautiful but it's really a super stunner!
