cape or shawl?
Here's what's on the needles right now. The yarn is Trendsetter "Serene"; a blend of silk, cotton, viscose, nylon, linen and a wee bit of silvery lurex. The colours are shades of grey and a sort of ivory or very light beige. I've paired it with a black possum wool I shipped back from New Zealand.
So this is the bottom of the back of the shawl. As it will venture over the shoulders I will split it for the neck. Two sides will be worked independently, making a cape-like front that can be closed with a shawl pin or buttons or what have you.
This one is being done plain but I already have ideas for textured or lacy ones.
