A good friend of mine is due her second baby soon, good excuse for some tiny person knitting. I have a love of vintage 50’s style carry capes from when our boys were babes. My mum had patterns for them that she had from her mum so my knitting legacy continues. Think of a lacy shawl with a hood attached and there you go. So some happy knitting later and we have this…

as modeled by the venerable Teddy Edward, he’s almost 50 and looking good, wish I could say the same.

I adore the edging on the hood, the original pattern called for the same type of yarn as the main cape but I couldn’t resist this rather kitsch fluff.

and as ever the arty shot, please indulge me in this
