Clapotis is finished!!! Just in time for my trip to DC.
Here is me wearing Clapotis as a scarf:
It is really lovely and I am so glad I used my Koigu for this project. It came out much thinner then the designed one would have and since I blocked it, it doesn’t have the natural curl that I liked so much from the picture but I still really like the way it turned out. Technically, I could wear it as a wrap.
Here is proof:
So there it is. Clapotis finished before Paula. Paula is next though…well, I guess it is not really next. Definitely next post-vacation project. On the airplane I made one of these little guys:
This is one of the Angora Baby Booties from Last Minute Knitted Gifts for my very soon to be born nephew. It is in the “Less-than-two-hour Gifts” section. Less then two hours my foot. I made these booties for a friend’s baby earlier this year thinking it would take me a couple hours…7 hours later I had a pair of booties. I am more experienced now and a bit faster but an hour per bootie is stretching it. Still, I love these booties and I love the green angora. So cute and so soft.
I have been in DC three days and I have been to two knitting stores. Knit Happens was great. The people there are so nice and there is this wonderful little community of knitters that work and gather there. I really enjoyed the few hours I was there. I picked up a great pattern for a lace scarf and some beautiful green Koigu.
Yesterday I went to Stitch DC. They have a lovely store with a beautiful set up and lots of yarn. I also met some fun knitters there. Makes me want to move back to DC. I might try and make it back to the store on Saturday for a sweater design class. I bought some great Lorna’s Laces Sock yarn for some knee-length lace socks I want to make:
Should be fun. I was looking for some deep red yarn but then I saw this color and thought it would look great too. But I promise�??and this time I mean it�??I am working on Paula first thing when I get home. Really.

nice! what are the measurements of your clapotis? you used 4 skeins of koigu, right?
Why does something that looks so nice sound like it should be treated with Penicillin?
Just a question from the non-knitting peanut gallery…
The clapotis (which sounds oddly enough like a point of humor from a Seinfeld episode) is almost as pretty as the knitter.
Nice work, Queenie!
“almost as pretty as the knitter”
Well, sure, if you’re into that sort of thing…
Some of us prefer our Queenies robot zombie flavored.
I want to be robot zombie flavored too!…right after I take up knitting…..
Nice Clapotis. Nice lurking too. You should come to a SLC S’n’B one of these days. Thanks for the info your Clappy too.
