Woo Hoo! I’m making progress on my nice, green cape. About 20 inches has been knit on the back section, so it’s coming along nicely.
In the midst of my wonderful progress, I have injured one of my toes. UGH! I was having fun on the internet, talking to some friends, looking at knitting patterns and yarn, when I realized I needed to get ready to teach piano lessons. So, I jumped up from the computer, to run down the hall and get dressed. BANG! Ran right into the TV cabinet in the living room. OUCH!
So, now, I’m stuck in bed, with my foot elevated. Bummer. At least I can still knit! Yes! Maybe I’ll get the back of the cape completely finished today.
Here’s the latest photo I’ve taken of the cape. It kinda looks like an apron in this photo. So, if you want to make an apron, just use the Bernat Side Button Hooded Cape pattern. Ha!
So far, I’ve used more than two skeins of Bernat Softee Chunky. It’s an easy yarn to use, especially if you pull the yarn from the center of the skein. Some people say that if you do that, you’ll end up with a lot of “yarn vomit” and the yarn will become a tangled mess. NOT SO! You just have to take the time to do it right, and you’ll have no problems at all.
I made a little video of how I always find the center of the skein. It works every time!
