economic recovery?



this cecily glowik mcdonald capelet from knitscene makes me so happy in an alice-in-wonderland, mackenzie-childs kind of way. and who couldn't use a little cheering up with all the doom and gloom going around these days. these two colors would not have been my first choice had they not been languishing in my stash. but in the name of economic recovery, i put them to work in this wrap. and pragmatism be damned, i tried it on with two different silky dresses i have, and the peacock blue and saffron don't feel at all like a frugal compromise.



the orchid wrap is just the right layer to get summer dresses off their lazy butts and back in business for spring's cooler temps. add a pair of dark booties to toughen up the look a bit and offset the lightness of the silky fabric. if it still feels too bare, just pull on a pair of dark tights and you're good to go. and remember how i thought i was losing my knitting mojo? let's just say i think i'm headed for an upturn.

Great boots! And a unique piece. I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now. I'm really getting into knitting myself. Doing a little more than just hats. I have three children, so not always so much time. But it's fun. By the way, I first started reading your blog when you had the yoplait commercial up. I sent it to my knitting circle - it is hilarious! Thank you. Regards from Hong Kong.

The capelet is beautiful! It looks great with the yellow dress and boots. Very Parisian, of you. :o)

I always love seeing how you style your handknits. Now that you mention it, the capelet DOES have a very Mackenzie-Childs flava!
