@mollymaggie  Heck, I was hoping someone could tell me where to buy them hahaha.   And, actually, @greeneyedlady  gave us a clue (see her post...2nd or 3rd one after my OP).  I thrifted mine locally for $3 and am trying to find someone to knit more for me. 

 

I found this one on etsy for $100 by searching (I use bing, but you can google it) for Irish capelet.  Looks like I got a fantastic deal!  Hope you find something molly.

Hi @phoenixbrd  We can't claim "forest," altho we wish hahaha.  But, semi-rural and lots of trees surrounding us and our neighbors.  It is lovely...I'm spoiled!  (Stay tuned for pics of the rest of my winter purchases.)

I've purchased a grand total of 7 pieces and spent a whopping $42 (approx.) since early Oct 2019 (to end of Jan 2020)...no one is more shocked than I hahaha!

 

This piece garnered the most interest and compliments than any other item in the past few years...go figure. 

 

I've been a serious shopper, including craft shows, for 55 years, and I've never seen anything like this.  Which is not to say that it (or something similar) hasn't been on the market, just that I've never seen one.

 

Light gray/denim blue hand-knitted lightweight soft merino wool mock neck thingy thrifted for $3.  I swear I don't know whether to call it a scarf or a cape or a short poncho or what!  Goes with many things in my closet.

 

I have my feelers out for someone in my community who knits so I can commission them to make me a few more (but no more wool anything for me...don't need wool in my neck of the woods and prefer cashmere anyway).  I love it.

@MacDuff   Good Morning! It's good to "see" you, too. I check the boards daily, but don't usually post. I like to read the topics of the day and comment on whatever tickles my fancy.

All is well here, and I hope all is well with you and your family. 😊
