Excuse the puppy butt please.

on the topic of ad hoc stitch markers, on "Knitty Gritty" she took a plastic drinking straw and cut it into little slivers.  just an idea for you.

ha! that is such  a good idea...straws...
i just moved froma crampy studio (with dog, boy, and all my supplies) into a two bedroom (hear the chorus singing?!) so i haven't been crafty aas i like, but i am going to host a little S&B soon...hopefully i will have the clapotis finished by then so i can inspire some of my fellow crafters to try the pattern. so cold here now tho- everyone is doing gloves and hats...

My Clapotis has to take a week's vacation while I finish two birthday gifts (my first pair of socks ever and Pasha the Penguin). But I just wanted to post that I did my first drops and it's all starting to make sense now!

Ok, it's official...I think my mom and mother-in-law need one of these for Mothers' Day.  How long do you think it'll take someone who is fairly new?

it will probably take awhile to make...took me a few days to figure out all the stitchs and its a lot of knitting when you figure in the repeats

and for stitch markers i ended up useing bright colored hair bands...they're really small and when i was younger i used them for like barbies hair but i think they're really sold for if you want to do little braids

A couple of weeks ago I finished my Clapotis--it's made of handpaintedyarn.com's worsted merino in Terracotta.  The colors are less orange-y than the picture shows--more a mix of rusts and pinks.  The yarn is absolutely beautiful--very soft, gorgeous colors.  Some of you may remember from my previous post that I had to use three balls of yarn, alternating the working yarn with each row, since there was a lot of variation in color between balls. It worked out great.  My timing was not so fabulous--it's just gotten warm enough here so a huge wooly scarf is too warm.  I guess I'll pack it away for next year!

Stunning!  You have to wait for a cool evening so that you can wear it out before you put it away!
