Both of the projects are gorgeous. I've been drooling over that Backyard Leaves pattern, and I *love* seeing the Karaoke knit up ... it's beautamous!

:D Thanks everyone, you are all too sweet! I'm having loads of fun with each! Although I've ripped 'Backyard Leaves' a couple of times bc I wasn't happy with the st defintion, but I think I've got it going now, just in time for my yarn to be here to finish the clapotis & accessories...LOL! I do now know that I will be looking forward to continuing the work on 'Backyard Leaves'...and making hat & gloves to go with it, too !

usamacka, a clapotis is the type of shawl/scarf that is worn by many of the ladies in France where it is my understanding, that they would never leave home without some type of scarf, no matter the time of year! Sounds wonderful to me bc I LOVE scarves & shawls

I think that is really true. When we went to Paris, it seemed like every woman I passed was wearing a scarf.

Kemp, u r just a traveling girl :D

ahh, I feel as though my knitting world is back to the way it should be since I just received my yarn & can finish my clapotis & accessories, then I can fully concentrate on Backyard Leaves of which I frogged bc I still wasn't happy with the st definition...all will be well when I can give it my undivided attention after completing the clapotis ensemble

Rebecca's WIP/Clapotis
UPDATE :D
Since receiving my yarn today I completed my clapotis this evening :D I have a couple of pics pre-blocking. I was contemplating not blocking it, as some people have said they prefer it unblocked...I'm gonna have to block ! I won't be able to block it until Monday when MIL goes home so that I will have the bed that she sleeps on for blocking ..it's quite large AND warm, I'm wearing it draped around my shoulders as I post
I used 6 and about 1/8 of the 7th skein of SWTC Karaoke yarn using size 8 needles.
I'm so EXCITED ...I will cast on for the hat tomorrow :D !

Clapotis...day 5/day of completion
