Showing you an older FO

As you may gather, I have been making a concerted effort to photograph the many knitted items that I have knit in the last few months and years. I haven't been very good with that, only with the items like socks and shawls that don't have to be modeled and I can take the photos myself!!

So today I am showing you an item I finished in 2010!! :)

This is one of the first items I knit with my own handspun yarn. I LOVE LOVE this capelet so much. The yarn I spun is so so soft, and it is so cozy to wear. I love it when the weather starts getting cooler so I can start wearing my knitted items!!

So, here it is:




I am TOTALLY loving my knitting at the moment, can you tell??? LOL :)

This pattern is called Lace Capelet and it is free over at Ravelry. It is a fun quick knit with a great end result!!

I cast on for Color Affection on Tuesday and am loving this pattern, it is hugely popular at the moment and has had 2570 people knit it and post pictures on Ravelry!

I am linking this post to Linda's Creative Friday again :)
