*which is what I’ll be if we keep eating rib-sket! But it was soooo good! But it is also what I named the chunky capelet I’ve been working on.
What a quick, fun little knit! The pattern is here, the Reversible Winter Capelet. I used the Noro chunky and 7 mm needles and a starting cast on of 55 stitches. I did 15 sets of raglan increases and I had 39 stitches for each sleeve, and 99 stitches for the body after the sleeves had been put on hold. I used up every scrap of yarn and still had to dig around and find some chunky brown to finish the cast off row. (BTW, holy knots, Batman! Each teeny little 60 m skein had at least two knots in it. Jeez!) I also kept a 4-stitch garter border on the front edges.
Oh yeah, I also did it in stockinette stitch, not reverse stocking stitch as the pattern is written. I really like it – it’s a cute little shrug and I can see it with a t-shirt and either a skirt or jeans.
Regarding the rib-sket, the big fella was eating the last of it when I asked him to take a couple of quick photos. He left his plate on the table and we stepped out onto the deck. After the first couple of photos, I thought I heard something and opened the door to find a very GUILTY looking Sabrina licking her chops. She helped herself to some of the ribs and corn bread and possibly some beans. !!!! While we usually don’t leave food within their reach, sometimes we do forget that (ex-racing) greyhounds have no concept of food being within reach and NOT for them. Oops! It was kind of funny that the one (big) piece left on the plate had a bit of a jagged gnawed edge of it. 😉
Now I’m back at the “nothing on the needles” point …
Edited to add: I keep meaning to post this link to some gorgeous greyhound puppies at that kennel in Finland. Cuuuuute!
