Not One But Two FOs

I did knit this summer and I didn't really finish much until the end of summer. First was the 2nd Daybreak I had yarn for - I really like this one and think I will keep it for me. Great fall colors. It is an addictive knit with a lot of stockinette which was perfect for watching tennis matches the kids were playing.
















I also made the Cranberry Capelet by Baby Cocktails (aka Thea Colman). I used Cascade 220 in the colorway Heather. I am modeling this in a short sleeve sweater and shorts but with a pair of jeans and a turtleneck it will be perfect for those chilly days where I need an extra light layer.

















Here is the detail of the cable that us up the front and back.
















As I was on the last rows I noticed a little error where my K2P2 was off. This was probably from when I was knitting in the dark due to our Hurricane Irene power outage. I had a small flashlight which I kept flicking on and off. I considered dropping down and picking it up but it was too far down. For a nanosecond I considered frogging back. Then I realized this will be on the back side and if anyone notices this near the hem of my capelet then they are standing FAR TOO CLOSE!
