Spiderweb Capelet and Mobile Monster

Filed under: knitting — Kristin @ 7:01 pm

I finished the piggy Mobile Monster (from Stitch ‘N Bitch Nation) about 2 weeks ago.  I managed to do it in one sitting.  The yarn for the cell phone holder is Berroco Plush 100% nylon in Precious Pink (1932) that I got from Yarnware.  I used size 5 needles for that.  The Spiderweb Capelet (from Stitch ‘N Bitch Nation) took me several tries to get right.  The pattern was messed up in the book and the corrections didn’t fix all of it so I had to figure it out for myself.  The lacework wasn’t actually that complicated and it only took me a few hours to finish once I knew what I was doing.  The yarn I used was Crystal Palace Merino Frappe 80% merino wool / 20% nylon in New Latte (012B) that I got from Fuzzy Galore.  I used size 15 needles and also a size F-5 crochet hook.
