Bridesmaid Capelets

Bridesmaid Capelets
I'm pleased to be able to share these photographs of this gorgeous wedding group. The beautiful bride has very kindly given me permission to show these images of her special day. All the lovely bridesmaids are wearing capelets designed and made by Hand Knitted Things...

This soft silky yarn is a mixture of bamboo and cotton

Smaller versions of the capelets for the pretty little Flower Girls

Swallowtail Shawl -II

Swallowtail Shawl - II
I cast on yesterday evening for this shawl (which I originally talked about here) in Rowan Classic Wool Silk DK in Limewash on size 4.5mm circular needles. After being unable to decide on a strong colour I went back to a "safe choice" neutral shade which I hope will go with anything. The yarn is lovely to work with and very, very soft next to the skin. Originally this yarn was destined to be a cardigan which had vast amounts of stocking stitch started in June 2009 here. I can no longer face any more of that stocking stitch on size 4mm needles so the cardigan is no more....and I have lots of this yarn for more projects!
