I finished my Green Gables. The picture isn't very flattering...my 7 yo took it but it is my first sweater for ME!


Also I cast on for Clapotis last night and am loving it.


Mmmmalabrigo is fabulous!

Green Gable looks wonderful (wonky picture angles and everything ;)). I'm in awe at your knitting speed - how wonderful!

The mmmmmmMMalabrigo Clapotis looks great too - I hadn't thought of using Malabrigo for that - but it certianly is lovely - I may copy you!

Welcome to the dark side of mmmmmmalabrigo love!!!! :inlove:

Very cute! And the clapotis looks great with that yarn. I have not tried malabrigo yet either, so you weren't the last one!

Vicky, how's that Clapotis coming along? I've been wanting to knit one since I first saw the pattern but haven't gotten around to it yet... Didn't know what kind of yarn to use for it... Does it knit up well in Malabrigo?

I hope so 'cause the picture you've posted in your blog looks really nice! :cheering: :heart:

Beautiful GG, Vicki - I think your 7yo is a very talented photographer already :happydance:

That yarn for your clapotis looks deeeeeeeeeeeelicious :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: I too have wanted to make one for a while, but have just procratinated over it and not chosen a yarn... you may just have just made my decision for me! I wonder if I can find some of that in the UK.... :thinking:

Clapotis is on hold right now :( I, unfortunately, am trying to finish up some afghan squares right now. 3 more to go! The afghan is for a bridal shower in August so I am on a time crunch right now! I can't wait to get back to it. And the yarn is yummy!
