Once upon a time, there was a pretty brown hooded capelet.... Huh? Well, have you ever designed something so fun that you really wished that you could keep it? I loved how this hood turned out, but the capelet was just a bit too dainty for my taste. I was thrilled to see that it sold, even though I was hoping to display it at a show this Saturday. I was intending to make another one in red, although I won't have time to finish it by Saturday.
I'd love your opinion. I know a red hood would be fairy tale chic and I bought some of this same luscious yarn in scarlet, but I don't know whether to keep the capelet style, or to try something else with it. I have some hooded scarves to display this weekend, but this style of hood is sleek and, to just dangle a scarf from it seems too simple. I know I have enough of the red to repeat this design, but if I were to make more of a cape, I would need more yarn.
I also keep seeing hints of the "Alice In Wonderland" movie that's coming out soon and have a Queen of Hearts design in mind. I'm looking forward to playing with that idea next week...after the show!
Let me know what you think. Thanks!
