I just finished up the Shadow Capelet pattern from the folks at Blue Sky Alpacas. Using three skeins of Techno, the capelet is knit in the round and then turned inside out so the wrong side of the work is actually the outside (and you don’t have to purl the entire thing!).
For a peppy, cheerful look, I chose Posh Pink and Cha-Cha Red as stripes to go with Fame (the cream).
Techno is soft and light, but it is a very insulating yarn – I was working on this inside a chilly coffee shop and it kept my lap quite warm. The capelet is the perfect size to tuck into a handbag in case of over-zealous air conditioning when you are out and about in the summer.
