completed Shadow Dance

I am now officially addicted to brioche rib... This capelet performs double duty: I can wear it indoors if it's a little chilly, but it also stretches easily so I can wear it over a jacket. Perfect!

Edited to answer questions from the comments:
I used 6 balls of Knit Picks' Andean Silk. They were originally cream-colored, but I dyed them red and brown. I started off with Kool-Aid dyes and got super bright colors. I eventually toned them down using Procion dyes, on loan from my friend Marie. Brioche rib is a little tricky at first, but the book has great schematic diagrams. The spectacular increases are super easy to do.
