Summer Gardens and Summer Shawl

I love all the bright colours of my gardens in the summer.
I love all the wonderful colours of all the yarns year round.
I love my garden.
I love my shop.

Pretty yellow flowers in my front garden
 Circle Capelet by Dye-Version
Before blocking 
- note outside edges are rounded

During blocking
- pinned the points on the outside edges and lightly spritzed

Ready to wear
Linda knit this stunning shawl for the shop using
Bamboo Sport by Dye-Version.
The yarn is beautifully hand dyed in Mississauga.
Linda said it was a fun to knit as it was different - you knit back and forth but ended up with circles!

  1. Hi Diane, what a lovely capelet! Kudos to Linda! The construction looks so beautifully form fitting, really nice detailing in the way it would fall on the shoulders and around the neck - is this pattern available with the purchase of the yarn or avaliable on it's own at the shop?
