Reader Show and Tell - Crocheted Close Scallops Capelet

One of my readers, Knit Purl Gurl, who is also a participant in the Knittinghelp forum that I have mentioned many times, wrote to me recently asking how I continued the scallop design onto the other three sides of my Wedding Gift Afghan because she wanted to do the same on a lap blanket she was making with the same stitch. Then I heard from her again with a link to her finished project. It was not a lap blanket, but a darling little capelet for her even more darling little daughter!

You can read about her journey from "I think I'll make a lap blanket" to "Look at the capelet I just finished!" on her Knit Purl Gurl website. She came up with a very practical and stylish solution to not having enough yarn.

While you are there, make sure you check out the Wonderful WEBS Giveaway she mentions for a chance at some great yarn and other knitter's delights. Even though I promised no more entering giveaways after my big Sewing Room Clean-up of 2009, I simply could not resist this one as it has things in it that I would actually love to use! How in the world could I resist the chance at 8 skeins of beautiful sock yarn, and that gorgeous bag, not to mention everything else in this generous giveaway? I couldn't!

Have you checked out any of my Tunisian Crochet or Granny Square videos to help you get started on a new project? I'll be adding more of each soon, so stay tuned!

Happy Stitching!
