I know, I wasn’t supposed to start on anything new as I had a due date and everything but hey, I do what I want. I did finish the frill of my second butterfly panel a week ago. I want to start on the body but for the life of me I can’t find the small needles I bought to thread the beads on so…I can’t start yet. I refuse to buy new needles as I know I have them somewhere. I just need to buckle down and find them. So, wanting to knit and sick of looking for the pesky thin needles and not ready to knit Paula sleeves, I decided to swatch my Koigu PPPM for Clapotis. Problem is, my swatching turned into real knitting and I just haven’t stopped. I think I love it. Here is a close up:
I love this yarn so much. I know the Clapotis won’t be as thick as if I used the recommended worsted weight yarn but I still think it works. The pattern is easy and is very fun once you start dropping those stitches. I am using US 7 needles and think it will be done in a week or so. I guess that depends on if I find those bead needles. Where could they be?

Your Clapotis looks lovely! I have seen two in person so far and wears well. Looking forward to your FO.
