Cold Shoulder Capelet

Since my parent's wedding is coming up, I decided I should make a capelet for my dress. Granted, I don't even know what dress I'm wearing (or if they even fit anyore) but a solid colored capelet will go with anything, right?

That reminds me...besides trying on dresses that were sooo 15 pounds ago, I also need to pull out the massive amount of girdles I've got. I've got the girdle shorts, the girdle bodysuit, the girdle stomach flatener, the girdle push-up bra...a girdle for everything, ha! Nothing says special occasion more than making yourself a sausage in spandex that is supposed to smooth you out. I digress...

I made the Cold Shoulder Capelet from the SnB Happy Hooker. This was an extremely fast project.


(Pi was excited tonight and insisted on being in the picture)

I used 2 strands of Caron Simply Soft in black and a K hook.

I think I might change the ties. Right now they are just chains attached to the edges of the capelet. I've got some black and silver thread from ages ago that would look good braided and weaved through the neck area. I don't want to pull out my whole stash on a weekday to search for it, so I'll check for it this weekend.



Want a new use for hangers? How about face...err...holders? I didn't even give her any sugar!

What a great caplet! Another thing I will have to make out of that book! I'm so glad I got it! I must be a faze of the moon or something cause my youngest has gone crazy! Great Job!

Wow, I can't believe you whipped up that capelet so quickly! I love it! The pictures of Pi are so cute, too!

See, now we're in the same boat, with the girdles and spandex (with my sister's wedding coming up), LOL!

CUTE! And after the wedding you can be a superhero!! Like, SuperHooker, and you could say stuff to bad guys like, "Be a-frayed, be very a-frayed!" Hahaha. I'm tired.
