I was a little unsure about this cape when I got it home because the arm slits just looked like huge tatty holes, so with a little wool and even less knitting know-how tried to fashion some contrasting pocket edges.
I failed and so I did what every self respecting woman does when she doesn't know what to do... I called on the talents of my Mum - the knitting aficionado. True to form she did a fabulous job and has transformed this cape from 'ho-hum' to 'holy crap that's fabulous!' or at least I think so anyway...

You'll notice that I'm not wearing a hat today, thankfully I was able to lift my left arm up enough to wash my hair over the sink (this will only make sense if you read yesterday's post). It's a little tricky to do one handed (especially with your less dominant hand) but I managed. When it came to drying it one handed, I hung my head upside down and blasted the roots, then I brushed it though and left it to air dry. It doesn't look too bad considering.
What do you think to my cape make over?
