Fair Isle capelet

There must be somethink wrong with me!
I don't complete almost any projects, I just start new ones.

Lately when my hourglass sweater came to the place when my project normally comes to a halt, when I'm done knitting and should just do the finish up part (and for an hourglass sweater that is extremely complicated (not) since it is done in one piece). I then started a zipped raglan cardigan in cotton (Muskat and "kabeltvinnad") for T, and realized it will not stretch as I thought. Back in the bag whith it to later be restarted.

Time for next project:
In the book Inspired to knit I found this great capelet and using some of my left over yarns (mostly Rowans Magpie, but also thinner wool used with 2 strands).

This is a fun knitting. I'm using 5,5mm needles so it will be much larger than origibally, on the other hand the girl in the picture looks really petite.

With only the threads to saw in and maybe do something about the edge I should be able to finish it.
Then it's time to starting blocking shawls.

UFOs work to be done - I'm joining Marias idea

Maria has i great idea and I'm joining in the UFO work. I have a huge pile of things to complete, many of them are just to block or saw together.

Here is a snap shot of the things to do:

Crochet jacket, crochet hat (the olymic one), swallowtail shawl, crow waltz shawl and lemon shawl.

First out is the Aeolian shawl from 2009. Remaining to do is blocking :-)
