Clapotis


Since this is my first post, and I'm not exactly sure what to write, I thought I'd show off the Clapotis I made. I used South West Trading Company Bamboo in Plum. I think I used size 8 needles (it's been a month or so since I finished). It came about because I wanted to make something for my MIL for her birthday (in June). I've been eyeing the Clapotis for about a year now thinking it was way above my skill level. But once I found this yarn I knew they would be perfect together. Once I started the scarf I realized it was one of the easiest patterns, and I couldn't believe I was scared of trying it for so long. Anyway, this is Evy modeling it for me. I'm about to pack it up. MIL lives on a farm, so I don't think she'll find too many opportunities to wear this (maybe to church). But she loves pretty things, and she totally appreciates handmade things, knowing the love that goes into them. So I know she'll love it.
