Christmas Knitting Update

Here's my finished Anthropologie-inspired capelet! Much better on the sizing. Modified by using size 13 needles and casting on more stitches to start with (should fit the intended recipient). It only required 1 3/4 skeins of the Nashua Creative Chunky Focus (just like Rowan Polar and a bit cheaper...will definately use again).

I still have a long way to go on the Circular Shrug. Usually I use chunky alpaca yarn, but I'm trying to substitute the Tapestry, so that it is not so bulky. So far so good. I really love the colors of this. I need to finish this this week though!!!!

Happy Monday! Two weeks til Christmas!! Love, Karabella

Oh my, I'm loving your blog! Can you share where the pattern is for the circular shug? I'm definitely adding it to the list!
