MOTHBALLIN’ MONDAY: No capes!

In theory, I love capes.  I love the idea of knitting a layer that wraps around you like a blanket, and I love how they look on other women.

In practice, however…

I can assure you, this is red.

I can assure you, this is red.

I have no idea how those splotches got on my lens, or why.

…not so much.

While I got gauge with both of these, I had to go down a few needle sizes, which made for a stiffer fabric.  This is why the bind-off row is all flippy.  (Yes, that’s a technical term.)  Also, they don’t cover enough to keep me warm, and there isn’t enough detail for them to look cute.

THEIR CERTAIN FATE: Both of these will be frogged at some point soon.  While I’m trying to find a good use for about 400 yards of pre-Made in China Cascade 220, the purple yarn will probably become an Alex Tinsley tam (possibly Foo Foo or Sweetness, unless you have a better idea.)
