FO- baby blankie, WIP- clapotis, new yarn......
I have been working on a Clapotis, using Karaoke- it feels as though it will take forever to finish, but I haven't really been working on it all that long, so I'm sure that it'll get done sooner than I think. The middle section has 12 repeats of 12 rows each........the picture doesn't really do it justice- you can see where I've done 3 dropped stitches on the right hand side.


I made a baby blankie for my neighbor, who is expecting a baby girl any day now. I used Plymouth Heaven- it was a super quick knit- on size 15 needles.

My LYS had their annual Big Yarn Sale this past weekend- I went on Saturday and got 10 skeins of Louisa Harding Kimono Angora, in a color called citrus. It is beautiful, and SO SO soft!! 70% angora, 25% wool, 5% nylon. It was on sale for $3.99 per ball!! Normally is is in the $10 range. I also got matching ribbon, to embellish with- and a book with the pattern for the sweater I want to make. I was so pleased with myself and the yarn that I went back on Sunday, and bought enough of another color of the same yarn for another sweater! I tried to take a picture of the book, it didn't come out too good but you get the idea.

The colors for that clapotis are beautiful! You look to be well on your way with it, and I'm sure you'll have it finished ASAP!

Great score on the angora! That is some GORGEOUS yarn! Can't wait to see the sweater when it is finished!

Karaoke is perfect for that pattern! And I love the other yarns you've selected too.

That baby blanket looks soft and cuddly.

"YUM" discribes that yarn perfectly.

I love violets and turquoise together.
