FO: Boundless

I’ll try my hand at FO (Finished Object) Friday now that I’ve got one to show off. Finally, the Boundless Cape is finished!

Pattern: Boundless by Christa Giles, from Twist Collective
Wool: Cascade Eco (1.5 skeins)

Hood up!

I really need to start doing my hair more nicely when taking photos of myself to post online. Anyway, I love this cape. It was really fun to knit up, although the cabling was definitely complicated so I wouldn’t recommend it as a beginner pattern. There are cables to be done on both sides of the work so I couldn’t just purl happily away on the back side. The cables made it a really interesting and engaging knit, though.

I am very happy with this, but I’m not sure how often I’ll wear it out. It’s getting cold here in Ottawa, too cold for wearing a cape to go run errands. Still, it’s gorgeous. Maybe it’ll be more of a springtime piece for me.

Happy weekend! I’m going to have a great weekend because Corey and I are going to pick up a new member of our household tomorrow. Hint: she has four legs and likes to play catch!
