and one more thing...

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!!
