Insanity. It's the new black.

7 Small Shawls: T - 53 days and counting down.

The kids are driving me absolutely insane with their bickering.

On the one hand, that means The Bear is back to his old self. Yay!!! On the other hand, there's that insanity thing.

Stephanie would make it sound hilariously funny.

Anne would make it look beautiful.

Kirsten would photograph the kids modeling gorgeous new designs.

I, however, am merely trying to scrape enough uninterrupted brain power together to finish just one of the many things that badly need finishing. Whenever I leave the room, the kids follow me. I think they smell proverbial blood and are moving in for the coup de grace. My sanity may not make it through the evening. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Oh, hey! Did you see the new Interweave Knits preview for winter? I have a project in it.
It's got cables. :)
People have been asking me to make it into a cardigan. What do you think?

My mind is wandering.

Thanks to everyone for their kind wishes. You all made me feel so much better!

Back to it....

Yes, a cardigan from that design would be WONDERFUL. But back to shawl designing!

LOL on the insanity and how different bloggers would respond!

Definitely a cardigan. As a short person, I could never wear a cape and look at all good, but the cables are lovely on it.

It's very pretty but I'm a little old for a cape. Would LOVE to see it as a cardigan.

I think it would be a good cardigan/coat if you left that back pleat in and let the cables run down the fronts and backs of the arms... just don't put them under the arms and on the side seams, otherwise wooly yarns would get a lot of wear and felt/pill a bit.

Love it as a capelet, and would love it even more as a cardi. Go forth and design! :-) Sam

I love the capelet -- I think some of us are not cool enough to wear it! If I was twenty-something, living in NYC with some gorgeous boots, I would wear this all the time!! Not twenty-something, not stylish, not in NYC and don't gots no cute boots...

You keep knocking them out of the park, Romi, That is a lovely cape, and my daughter now has a severe case of cape lust after reading this blog. Congratulations!

This may be the one and only cape I ever have.

I have never found capes so appealing.

If you made it a cardi, I may have to knit both.

I guess having only one child was good for my sanity, even though we didn't actually decide to have only one.

And, yes - a cardigan would be lovely!

Sure fire cure for bickering kids (it worked for me and my brother--we fought like cats and dogs and dear mom hated it--until she did this):

When they start to argue make them kiss each other on the lips and say they are sorry. and they will stop argueing immediately! Blech, who wants to kiss a sibling?!! This also worked for my friend who has 3 boys.

My mom would yell out "do I have to make you two kiss and make up??" We would immediately stop argueing. You have to make them kiss at least once or they won't take you seriously. Usually it only takes one time. I know it is gross but it does work.

Love your caplet. a cardigan would be nice too.

Oh cardigan, please! I'd never ever wear a cape in a trillion years. And probably never knit one, either.

Your cape is absolutely beautiful Rosemary! I am, as usual in awe of your abilities!
Congratulations on these feats while raising good people to carry on in the world.

Gorgeous! I love, love, love that arrow cable. (I'm using it in a design--great minds think alike!)

I think it's a gorgeous pattern and would like to see it lengthened. Capelets are wonderful but it would be quite dramatic at full length.

I love the capelet but I'm at that "difficult" age where I risk just looking like Miss Marple wearing it. So I'd love a cardigan :-)
