A Pretty Thing

I made a pretty thing for my lovely friend Christina to wear at her wedding reception this weekend.

It's a crocheted, beaded capelet, which I worked using a pattern from Phildar magazine #440 (the same book this scarf is from). If you want this excellent magazine, you can find it here. Please note, though, it is only available in French.

I used less than 2 balls of Rowan Kidsilk Haze in Trance, and a bunch of clear tiny beads with silver centers.

It's unusual for me to make something pretty and delicate; generally, it fits neither my style of dress nor my lifestyle. I really enjoyed having an excuse to make this, and it was nice to be able to make something beautiful for my friend.

I hope she likes it.

How could she not like it? It's gorgeous! : ) If she doesn't like it, call her an ingrate and take it right back! ; )

It's really, really beautiful Mandy. I'm half hoping the reception dress is orange, the blue looks so good with the chair!
