Big needles, quick knit July 9, 2012 – Posted in: Mondays with Mona

When the latest Knit.Wear came in, I was very impressed, they had me with the model on the front page. I was not alone, the 10 copies flew off the shelf, I do believe we have ordered more, though!

Very unexpectedly (a late night browsing on ravelry did it) I was intrigued by another design, the Capelet Tank by Cathy Carron. I bought four skeins of Allhemp6 LUX and started Tuesday night as soon as I could sit down on the couch. I will admit Wednesday didn’t see much work done but knitting and I finished Thursday morning because I ran out of yarn.

I’m neither a good model nor photographer. Ah, well.

I like how it came out, though would have preferred the top slightly longer but I wasn’t going to buy another skein, and after all I got the measurements as intended in the pattern. This was a fun, quick project – who says summer is not for knitting?
