Northern Lights Capelet I knit this Northern Lights Capelet in the spirit of the earliest knitters, to bring light and warmth into the darker, colder months. Wear this cropped little cape under or over your coat, a streamlined layer that blocks arctic air from necks and shoulders and looks very pretty doing it! Knit up in a soft palette of Purl Soho’s beautiful Flax Down, this Capelet is a blend of baby alpaca, extra fine merino and linen. The subtle shades of the Nordic-inspired colorwork glow like a February sunrise. A perfect cure for the winter blues!

These things are multiplying like Gremlins and heading all over the world to far off lands, battling Customs officials to make their way to desks and eventually cushion adorable little Droids, iPhones and Blackberries everywhere. It’s been a lot of fun, and a lot of work. Besides the PodPillows, I’m in a bit of a craft slump. Silken Straw Summer Sweater I've always been surprised by knitters who put their needles down for the summer. How do they occupy their hands for those three months? I've wondered. Do they take up smoking?
