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.
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?
