Bitten by the Clapotis bug
I love the Clapotis pattern from Knitty. I'm starting mine tonight. I worked up a few swatches so I could "get" the pattern and now I will stumble onward with a little bit of confidence. There are some really awesome explanations/tutorials here of how to get your Clapotis to look it's best. You gotta love the internet.
I am going to be using Debbie Mumm's Traditions in the midnight color way. I know a lot of people don't like it but I am a pretty loose knitter and I try not to put too much drag on the yarn so I think I will be ok. I am completely in love with the color so I and going to risk it.
I am not knitting on my machine right now because it just reminds me of how mad I am at the post office for losing my eBay find, so my hand knitting is keeping me sane.
