Another glorious day!

I have been sitting in the sun all day in a sundress! The weather has been gorgeous! In an effort to destash slightly and to give myself a portable garden project (I finished Roxybadoxy's beanie), I have embarked upon an anthropologie inspired capelet based on this tutorial here
I have loads of little scraps of blue yarn which I've been trying to use up, so I decided to attempt to use them all in one go on a moderately sized project. I used large needles and scraps of DK yarn - two strands together, changing colour as each strand runs out. This is giving me a gorgeous varigated effect which I really like - I've used this technique before and I love how it turns out!
I think I like the reverse side though, so I'll probably sew it inside out :-)
I need something to take my mind off work tomorrow - I have two jobs, one which is great and one which sucks. I'm at the sucky job tomorrow. Well, it's not really the job that sucks, it's the boss and I think he's got it in for me. Till I win the lottery, I have to stick with it I guess, unless I find something else.

The blue capelet/shruggy thing will look gorgeous in those mixed blues. I used the same technique for a calorimetry, what can I say, I'm a cheapskate ; )
