Fiber Arts Friday: Alpaca Cape, part 5

Last time (May 2014) I was still unsure about my repaired cross.  It's second from the top and looked pouchy to me in person.

But after resting on the guest bed for a few weeks, I decided it wasn't too bad and put the project back on my WIP shelf.

I finally I picked it up last month.  It took me a bit to figure out where I was and remind myself of what I was doing... just a few rows after cable cross #6 with a total of 22 called for by the pattern.

I've been working on it a little bit almost every day since, and am now up to cable cross #10.

This will be a very generous wrap when finished, so in the event that I don't have enough yarn I have a backup plan for the bind off.

It's now 46 inches wide/long, with 12 cable crosses and ~3.5 balls to go... and each row taking a little longer than the last.  ;-)

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
