  1. I love this – it will be my next project. I am just finishing the Funchal Moebius and about to embark on the Tir Chonaill …. I am a friend of Sharon at Great British Yarns (she went to school with my sister). I live in Madeira and that was what attracted to to your pattern. I have never attempted anything as complex but I am getting braver!

  2. Beautifully designed cape. Reminds me of the “mini-capes” the lead lady wore in Outlander tv show. Where did you learn to knit? I’d love to learn but need some guidance (am located in Virginia near the DC area). Keep up the fantastic work! Sincerely yours, Kitty Petroff
