the babette blanket is moving along a nice clip! i've finished seaming each of the 10 sections and i'm ready to put them together. after that all i have to do is press it, crochet the border, and press it again.
i don't recall if i already mentioned it, but the blanket is a gift for my brother and sister-in-law for their wedding in July. I think they are looking for a good poem or two for the wedding, so if you know of anything please let me know!
i just cast on a capelet for myself (the stripey version), i am using green Noro Iro and i went down a needle size to an 8mm but i may go down further too a 7mm. i love the old one but it stretched because of the loose gauge and i'd like it to be a bit more snug. i wear it all the time at work, it is perfect for when i'm a little chilly and provides protection from pluto's little gifts.
