Is there a more recognizable and universally known knit than Clapotis? I met my first last week, up close and personal at Yellow Dog Knitting. It was knit by shop owner, Dixie, using Schaefer Yarns' Laurel (a handpainted, variegated, mercerized, pima cotton) in the Billie Holiday colorway -- it was lovely, with nice drape, a bit of sheen. Mmmmm. I wish you could see, but, alas, no camera. Dixie said that she was inspired by two other customers who used the same yarn for their Clapoti (or Clapotises?). The short end was sewn to the long end, so it was very easy to wear while working. The shop was full of samples -- lots of little stuff, variations on a theme -- and I really liked that. As if I need inspiration to add anything to my queue.
I had a nice lunch yesterday and got lots of other nagging things crossed off (mostly) my list. There's more to do, but I'm feeling better about my possible playtime with M*c this weekend. I've completed four repeats on Caryl's Kerchief and will post a photo tomorrow. I like it; DH commented on the beautiful color last night, too.
