Creative Colourful Capelet

Sally being a really good sport!

The weather here the past few weeks has been so changeable. We have gone from record warm days to snow to warmish days to thunder and hail storms. On one of our nicer days Sally wore this into the shop. It is a capelet than can also be worn as a cowl. I apologize for a slightly blurry picture but I have to shoot fast!

I really like this idea. Often in spring (when it actually warms up) when the weather is in a transitional state I really don't need much of a jacket. The sun is warm but the air can be a bit cool still. Having a capelet to layer over a tee or a light sweater would be great to keep warm without feeling all bundled up. Sally knit this using two different types of Noro yarn, one a semi solid and the other a multicoloured boucle. The colours are super pretty together. You could knit a bright colourful one or one in a more neutral palette. I love the drawstring at the top with the pom poms-gives it a fun casual look.

The two different yarns give a nice textural look

It is a very fun and easy knit.

What a face!!

 This is Wendy's new puppy Tima. Tima, pictured here with Colleen, is a beautiful Labradoodle. She is the calmest sweetest puppy ever. Her fur is like silk. We all fell in love with her immediately. She will start her training to be a service dog with Wendy soon.

Absolutely adorable!

And then there is Archie

Happy Spring friends!!   Chris
