FO: Lace Capelet


Pattern: Lace Capelet
For: me
Yarn: 273 yds Malabrigo Lace in Lavanda / 192
Needles: US 10 Knit Picks Options
Inspired by: AShrillCaramel's version
Timeline: started 02.09.2009; finished 02.27.2009

Well, not much to report on this. The pattern was straightforward and it knit up really fast. I followed some other people's suggestion of casting on 140 sts, and it worked out well. I also knit additional decrease rounds on rounds 81 and 85. I would have finished it sooner, but I first bound off knit-wise, which ended up too tight. Then I did a sewn bind-off that was way too loose. Finally, I went ahead and redid the sewn bind-off so that it was tighter. I think it looks better now.

I really liked working with the Malabrigo Lace and enjoyed the subtle color shifts in the yarn. I think this will be great to toss over a tank top during the summer. If I had been paying attention, I probably would have made it so that there wasn't a disruption to the yarn-over pattern where the row began, but I was lazy. I don't think it's that big of a deal anyway. I probably should have knit another repeat before starting the decreases, but...yeah, lazy.

Oh how beautiful is this! I love lace, but get so frustrated all the time by it. But this is just breath taking :)
 
Wow, I've never posted right after someone who shares my odd spelling of my name. But I agree with her completely!
