Anyway, I really liked the video. And in the video Ysolda is wearing this Red Riding Hood type cardigan thing which she describes as a more practical version of a fairy tale cape. Which I also really like.
Also, Ingrid from Knit On the Net recently featured Susan Crawford's Town and City Tufted Cape from Vintage Gifts to Knit and then when I was walking to work the other morning I saw a particularly hip theatre maker walking to Toi Whakaari wearing a kind of mid-lenth cape (not a knitted one though, it was made out of heavier woollen coat-like fabric) and I liked that too.
So the moral of the story is, I want a cape. I just think they are really cute and jaunty. This one (on Ravelry) is more cute than jaunty, but I like the pointed hood. Although it doesn't necessarily have to be a knitted cape. And really, at the rate my one sock is going, I'm never going to have time to knit half of the things I want to knit.
Soon I'm off to dinner at a friend's house and I'm taking some amazing cheesecake I discovered today, from Yummy Mummy's on Lambton Quay. I love cheesecake and from the sample I tried at the shop, this could be very dangerous...
