I'm in love with my cape!

I sold my first cape today!! How exciting!! I've also got commissioned to make another girl today whilst setting up the knitted garden for the exhibition today for the Turnpike Gallery.
This woman has was in the midst of making a uber crazy project making a massive giant size crochet project!! She was on a massive ladder filling yer "yarn" I'll post the pictures in the next few days, and I can't WAIT to see her finished work.
She describes herself as a fibre artist and is from Northern Ireland. She's one to check out, You can follow her blog here.

The beautiful thing about these capes is the fact that it's a simple rectangle. i once saw something like it years ago in my teens at a shop. I've played with the design and added my own twist with the applique on it and have been thinking about added pockets on the insides.
If you want to learn how to make them have a look at my tutorial here on

  1. I like your cape and I'll check out your tutorial to make my own. And thank you for signing up for my daily photo. You and I are both enthusiastic about our avocations and that's fun to share.
