Sorta steampunk vintage looking capelet

I finished the crocheted capelet, which is the same pattern from Debbie Stoller's Happy Hooker that I made out of mohair a few years ago. This pattern seems to lend itself to any kind of yarn, and it was fun to see what mercerized cotton looked like in this drapey little cape. I added some old buttons to make it look even more steampunk. I'm going to wear it over t-shirts or tank tops to keep my cleavage from burning ('cause it does that -- yeah, white-girl problems).

Crochet spring

Crocheting a lacy capelet is making me happy today, especially the metallic yarn..

Fluffygothy Improvisation Sweater

Yes, it's spring (see the hydrangeas?) and yes, I'm knitting a black sweater, with stripes of fuzz. What of it? I'm a rebel.
