Darn Yarn & Stuff Like That

Red Cape ~ Mission Accomplished

As I tied off the last stitch of edging, thunder rumbled outside.   A severe thunderstorm warning had been issued and it was here. The lightning was awesome. It lasted a couple of hours. By bed time I had both kids in my bed

So, the Cape is done! I am so excited! I will be mailing it off this week to Miss Sara. The pattern was fairly easy and done ins half-double crochet. I got bored of only doing that so I added some variations along the way. It was made with Red Heart Super Soft Red Red and Plum Purple. I’m finally happy with the results!
