Workin' It!

Well, all the worrying was for naught. Clapotis is finished and I've got tons of yarn left - certainly enough for a small scarf and I didn't remove a repeat (thank goodness cause it would have been too short if I had)!

Anyhow, most of these pics were taken at work this morning - oh yeah, baby - I'm wearing it. I finished up the knitting last night and only had 2 ends to weave in - how cool is that - I wish I could buy all my yarn in 600m hanks. It needed to be blocked but dried super fast - perfect attire for our freezing office. I may make one in every shade of the rainbow so I can wear a Clapotis everyday!! Anyhow, here are the pics.

First, we've got the home shot taken by Brad - he always manages to make me look like a cow. Well, maybe not like a cow but he adds at least 10 pounds even when I try to do the sideways skinny illusion stance. The man is a master.


Now, some shots from the office...this is how I've been wearing it (not like the first shot).


And this is my over the shoulder glamour puss shot...um...yeah...sure it is. Glamour puss...right.


So, since it was only 9:30PM when Clapotis went to the blocking board last night, I couldn't help casting something on. Mellow Yellow socks!! These are so soft and fuzzy and knit up amazingly quick on 5mm needles at least until I got to this point and now the pattern is confusing and sucky so wish me luck tonight... The yarn and pattern are from Fleece Artist - I'm using a double strand of MO and Bluefaced Leicester in Mellow Yellow.

Oooh, the clap turned out beautifully! I love the rich chocolatey goodness of that color. Makes me want to snuggle up with a cozy scarf--but sadly it is 90 degrees here.
