clap your hands and say YEAH!
The clapotis, she is done.
I had read lots of accounts of how boring people found this pattern to knit, the repetitive straight rows, broken only by the momentary thrill of the "dropped stitch" once every 12 rows.
Me, I loved it.
I loved that I could knit away happily while watching TV, and I enjoyed the repetition. It was easy to pick up and put down at a moments notice; it fit into a small bag that I could carry around with me and whip through a few rows whenever time permitted.
In short, it was exactly the right knit at exactly the right time. Don't you love that sort of synergy?
I will definitely make another one of these, by right now I have been commissioned by a certain 9yo for a hot pink and black beanie (we are going through another punk phase - I count my blessings daily!)
