Late to the Party

I need you all to flash back about 5 (or 6) years and pretend that I am presenting you with my finished Clapotis during the height of Clapo-mania.

Just ignore that there are literally thousands of these around and pretend like I am an early adopter of such a cool pattern.

When you see how I have come up with this incredible way to wrap it around my neck like a scarf, instead of a shawl, be amazed.

Oooh and ahh at how I use Noro Silk Garden (because thousands have not done it before me) to create an interesting striping pattern that contrasts with the dropped stitches.

Pretend that I am a knitting genius.

Ahem.

Ah, who cares if I am super late to the party. I love how it turned out, and I know I will wear it often. And I am glad that I used the yarn from my frogged Klaralund. It was just too pretty to have sitting around in cakes.

Now, if we could just have a day where the high was not 90F, I might be able to wear it. Do you think it was a cooler fall 5 (or 6) years ago?

    For sure your fall was cooler 5 years ago…You still lived up here! LOL! High of 18C. today with thunderstorms and rain. Love the shawl/scarf, so pretty. Wish I had been there to see the unraveling, still boggles my mind!

    it’s so pretty!! And hey, late to the party is still attending, right? I’ve never knit a clapotis, if it makes you feel any better. Yours is beautiful!

    well Dani, the only thing worse than being late to the party is not going at all! Aren’t you glad you decided to pary along? It’s just gorgeous.
