i am SO geeked!


"we wanna be clap-o-TEE!" Posted by Hello

i've been jonesin' to knit clapotis for months. but i decided that i will NOT, i repeat, i will NOT, start anything else until i finish something. it's so hard to actually stick to that but i'm doin' it. so far. i only have like less than 18" left on the irish hiking scarf and can't wait to finish it, ideally in time for valentine's day. in my impatience, i was diggin' around in my stash today, looking for enough of something to make clapotis. wellllll i found it! i have over 55 ounces of a pretty variegated blue yarn. some no-name acrylic stuff (probably red heart) that i bought a few weeks ago from one of my LYS that only sells cotton and acrylic yarns by the ounce, and with no labels. swear to god. but there's usually tons of everything, and it's cheap enough. like someone said, acrylic has its place in the world. but i digress. the yarn was pretty, i had to have all of it, and i knew the perfect pattern would come along. clapotis is IT, baby!

my cell phone camera does not do it justice. it's got aqua and turquoise and lavender and lighter lavender...very calm. calm clapotis. can't WAIT!

if you are as in love with this as a lot of people are, you might consider joining the clapotis knitalong!

  4. Isn't it great when you find something at home and realise what a good job you did choosing it? That will make a lovely clapotis, from Tracy in the UK who still hasn't gotten around to making one herself!

  6. I love the variegated blue, I think it will look awesome as Clapotis. BTW, what LYS sells yarn by the ounce in Ohio? I'm in Columbus, is it nearby?
