We saw the sample at a place called the Lamb Shoppe and if you are ever in Denver and looking for a good yarn shop, I would highly recommend this one. It's owned by two ladies who are expert knitters with a great sense of color and style. They carry all types of yarn from Rowan, Noro, Classic Elite, and Madelinetosh to yarn by local indie dyers. The shop itself is pretty big and they usually have a lot of sweater samples to look at for inspiration as well.
Here is the beginning of my Cabled Capelet II
Cascade's Soft Spun is 100% wool and not plied. This is knit on size 11 needles and the yarn is doubled so I really think I can finish this off in no time if I just stick to it. That's a provisional cast on and I will be joining it together with a Kitchener stitch. Needless to say, it is very warm and my daughter wears it a lot in the winter; as for my sister, she works in San Francisco and so I think she could probably wear this year round ( a little Mark Twain humor - he said the coldest winter he ever experienced was a summer in San Francisco).
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
