Who let the cat out of the bag?

Oh, nobody did, because he's still in there! Just like these cats.Update on Buster: he's getting on just fine - and likes to hide out in the Bloomie's bag. No comments about the messy floor please...I need a weekend at home to clean!

I never got to post this, since I've been away like every weekend, and busy at work. April 28, we went to New Hope, PA for a friend's bachelorette weekend. It's such a cute town, with lots of trendy shops, and even a kitchen supply store where I decided I needed to stock up for Dye-O-Rama!
Here are my dyeing utensils...I loved the mustard squeeze bottles! So kitchy...and only a dollar each. Now, to my DOR pal, I'm still waiting for my yarn to come in from Socks That Fit, then we'll get to dyeing!
In other bag-related news, I swapped some good ol' Brooklyn Handspun for this cute sock bag made by fellow NJ blogger Trek! She calls this fabric "Starry Night" here's the obvious connection with my dining room artwork ala Van Gogh. Stop by her blog to check out her custom fabrics and request one of your very own!
It even has this cute teddy bear applique (and dons my Knitters without Borders pin I bought when the Yarn Harlot came to town).

Not much in knitting news to report, but on the way down to a college roomie's wedding in Baltimore, I decided to use some of my newly acquired Brooks Farm Limited Edition 2 from MSW to make, yes, an Anthropologie Capelet. Even I'm not sick of them, folks. I just didn't get a chance to finish it. It would have matched my dress so perfectly...but I was 2 bind off rows away from completion...

Is anyone still knitting this? If so, I've decided to set up a reader gallery. Email me and I'll add your pic!


  1. I finally got some yarn to start one of these :) Will let you know when it's done and you can have a picture for the gallery!

  2. I have just started my cape in some rowan cotton tape which was in my stash. If I make it to the end without running out of yarn, I'll send you a picture!

  3. Love the latest caplet. The color is great and the texture looks amazing.

  4. I was browsing The Hot Brunette's finished projects. Recognized Minisweater (done that) and Ruby (done that), but was wowed at Circular Shrug (where's that found?). Thanks for sharing a great free pattern! It's next on my list.
