lest there be fewer projects in the works
this is a wool cape
I've had this since September of 1982
it is wonderfully warm -- and it has just one problem
in this area having the sides of a winter cover up open is not a good plan
for quite a while I've been thinking about turning it into a coat by stitching up the sides and adding some knitted "leg of mutton" sleeves, thereby turning it from cape to coat
then my daughter asked me the other day if she could borrow it for the winter season since by the time it's really cold weather, her winter coat won't fit around her and the expected little one
hmmm, seems now is the time to get this project done!
I cast on the stitches last night
progress reports to follow!!
