Vacation Clapotis
I made my very first Clapotis on vacation, got it finished in just 9 days

The first two pictures are of the unblocked clapotis "artfully" displayed on my Dad's dock. I blocked it with a steam iron and decided to use it as a table scarf for my Hepplewhite table. I may use it as a scarf when it gets colder but right now I love the look of it on my table.

That is beautiful! What yarn did you use?

Nine days, seriously? Not that I'm jealous or anything, but I've been working on mine for a few weeks. I'm probably at the half way mark.

Okay, I am jealous!

Waaaa. It's so pretty. I need to try knitting Noro yarn soon, because the color is just so great.

That looks beautiful both on the dock and on the table. Very elegant. Vacation time well spent.
