I've been wearing my new cape, and loving it!

Note: I made my cape an inch shorter than the directions recommended, because I'm a short person. I was afraid that I would look like a little girl if it was longer than that. I'm glad I made it shorter, because I can wear it while I'm driving.

Sandy,

I love it--and the shorter length looks much more comfortable to wear. One question...it looks green on the blog and brown here...which is it??? That is so cool how you were able to put your face on the colors to choose one. I have no idea how to do that, but how smart. It's fun to see you on Bernat--you are like a member of the family!

Thanks for the love, Pam! I tell you, I just pinch myself everyday to make sure it's not a dream. It's so cool to see myself on their website. Bernat yarns have been around for so many years, and it's just amazing that I am becoming part of their history now!

The cape I made is definitely green, but my poor old camera does not capture the color very well. The Bernat marketing department noticed it, and decided to take matters into their own hands. Their art department is "colorizing" my photos, so the yarn looks right!

Here's how I did the color trick with my face. I used the Bernat "Color Clicker" feature on their free patterns webpage, and made copies of the project in colors I liked, then pasted those photos in MS Paint. Then I found a photo of my face, and traced around it with the "free-form select" tool in Paint. Then I dragged my face photo around the screen to try on the different colored projects.

Thanks Bambi!
It's a very comfortable accessory! I love throwing it on over a simple top, and making my outfit look nicer.

Pam, I just made a little video to show how I use the Color Clicker projects with MS Paint on my computer, when choosing what I want to knit.
