Silken Capelet

I got a gift of gifts a few days ago.

A dear friend knitted me a silken (really) capelet for my birthday.  I am even more grateful because her mom had a severe illness happen about the same time as my birthday, so my friends time is very limited with caring for her mom and getting through her own life as well.  Yet she created this beautiful capelet.

I saw one in her photostream on Flickr a few months back and had left a comment that the beautiful creation was "the stuff that dreams are made from".  Little had I known then that I would hold a dream in my hands a month later.  I am looking for just the right top to wear it over.  A black scoop necked one would be best I think.  No necklace as the collar enhances the capelet beautifully.  My regret is I was unable to capture the glint of the very tiny jewel green beads throughout.

Thank you Karen and much love and gratitude.  XXOO
