Isn't this a lovely sock? I bought the yarn from a local dyer at the fiber festival a year or two ago -- it's called "Zombie Apocalypse". Only trouble is... I wound the skein into two balls, and now that I've finished the first sock the second ball has completely disappeared! Aaaargh -- I've looked everywhere. I even asked Al if he had seen it . (He was kind enough to NOT say a word about my overgrown yarn, fabric, etc. stash and no wonder I couldn't find it, but then don't get me started about the condition of the basement and garage!)
I figure someday 20 years from now when we move into assisted living, the extra ball will turn up...
I have two nephews turning 4 this year, and that seems like the perfect age for a super-hero cape! One of them got mailed off already, but here's the second -- all done ahead of time for a July birthday:
Both of the boys have names starting with "G" so I got enough practice with that letter. The inside of this cape has fabric that's actually supposed to be sunflower leaves, but I thought it looked sort of mysterious-magical!
I found the pattern online at the Longthread site-- lots of cool ideas there.
