Rebecca's WIPs
Okay, when I 1st saw the new thread I didn't post correctly, I was all about it's a cool idea..and it IS :thumbsup:

KitKat, I am using SouthWest Trading Company's Karaoke yarn for my clapotis. It's very cool 50/50 wool/soysilk!

I've had to stop knitting my clapotis (right before completion :shock: )bc I ran out of yarn :doh: ! The yarn should be here tomorrow, it was supposed to be here this past Monday! But, since it didn't arrive I cast on my the next scarf from my project list which is "Branching Out" from Scarf Style. I have ideas for a hat & the fingerless gloves going around in my mind as I knit this scarf...YAY :D! I am using knitpicks' WOTA in fern.

Here we have clapotis from day 1 to day 4, when I ran out of yarn :shock:


BACKYARD LEAVES....the beginning ;)
EDIT on 11-23 oops....frogged it & deleted be continued later this week ;)

That Clapotis is just so beautiful!!! Two things at once? I read that you had to do that. Is there nothing I can depend on anymore?! :rofling:

Thanks :D

LOL, that is one of my 'firsts' for the KAL! The only reason that I have more than one WIP is because I ran out of yarn on my clapotis & I had ordered some yarn last week (paid for priority mail, I might add!) so that I would have the yarn here when I finished the clapotis & I would be ready to begin the hat & gloves to match. WELL... :shock: I ran out of yarn for the 1st time ever, which was gonna be okay, bc my yarn was supposed to be here Monday & I ran out Sunday...but my yarn won't be here until FRIDAY!! So, I hat to knit, right?! LOL, I spent Sunday learning to knit 2 small circular items on 2 circs (for upcoming gloves and another 1st for Nov KAL!) and I just had to, really had to knit, so last night I cast on Backyard Leaves...thus, the story of why the MONOGAMOUS knitter has a little on the side ;)

I cheat on ALL my projects, so a little straying to prevent withdrawal is acceptable. ;)

Drooool. I love that yarn for Clapotis. It's gorgeous.

Thank ya'll all so much :D ! It's really fun to knit :D . I just :frog: the beginnings of the Backyard Leaves bc I was just not happy with the look of it with 8's, so I changed to 7's (as the pattern calls for :doh: ) & I believe I will be happier...if not, I will :frog: it until I am ;) ! Anyway, I must abandon it for my Clapotis & accessories when the yarn arrives on Friday.. :cheering: :cheering: so I will have it to wear for Thanksgiving ;)

Those colors on your Clapotis are REALLY KILLIN me with the GORGEOSITY!! :heart:

Jouf 11-17-2005 09:09 PM

I love the colors! Am I the only one that had to study and study to figure out how the heck day 1 became day 4?? I was soooo confused. Finally decided day 1 just LOOKED bigger. Wait. Don't tell me if I was the only one. I don't want to know.
