Bunch of recent knits!

My most recent wearable: Anthropologie inspired capelet . Pattern found on, love that website! I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Superchunky, very soft but rather expensive. I used 2 and 1/4 skeins on size 11 circular needles. This top-down raglan is a quick and easy knit. Oh and its reversible. Tempted to make more!
Okay this frame number is an idea I had to use as a jewelry hanger. Unfortunately the picture didn't turn out that great. Its a loosely knit rectangle glued onto the back of a frame. It works great to hang earrings & brooches on so that they are not strewn about my home (which they were). And I actually think it looks really cool.
Here's a stuffed pig I made for my Aunt who is preg. I got this pattern from a friend. It's actually knit in 2 main flat pieces then sewn together, the tail & ears added last. He's definitely got some homemade character!

A blanket I made for our friends who are due this September with a little boy. Can't wait to see the little guy! I named it Baby Boy Blanket, done with lovely Lion Brand Cotton Ease.

More Saartje Booties! They accompanied the blanket.
That about wraps up my recent knitivities. I need to update this thing more often so I don't have so many unrelated knits at once!
