I'm sure everyone has heard enough about the Clapotis over the years - every one and their dog seems to have made one, and there are rabid fan groups on Ravelry - so I wondered if I would actually ever join the ranks?
Then one night I was searching for a small project, and with a little inspiration and assistance from Carson, plus the fact that Bells had just cast on her first, I jumped right on in.
I wanted to make a light scarf, and in particular, one that didn't itch, so I'm making the single sock skein version, utilising these notes.
The Knittery's merino/cashmere (new) in Forest Moss, on 3.75mm needles.
Halfway through and so far, so good!
I'm heading off to the Bendigo Wool and Sheep Show in July, and have signed up for the BBQ Brekky (8am at the lake - brrrr!) so I'm planning to have this finished and ready to wear.
this, plus my thermals, my down jacket, a beanie, some mittens, thick 8ply socks a couple of (woollen) layers between skin and said down jacket...
should be hoot!
