Better mood and pictures of Clappy
Well, I've recovered from my doom and gloom mood of a couple of days ago. Looking forward to Thanksgiving and having some time off. I made a Pear-Cardamom cake lastnight and I think it'll be a nice dessert offering.
Here's a photo of Clapotis as it's making its way to the end. I've had some problems with decreases and had to frog back a few times to get on track and make sure the dropped stitch interval was symmetrical, but for the most part, I think it will be fine. I was hoping to have it done to wear on Thanksgiving day, but that won't be happening.
I actually started this piece two years ago just after Thanksgiving at my sister-in-laws's (where we are going this Thanksgiving as well). She was amazed at how many times I started Clappy, knitting for a while, realized a mistake I was making and then ripped it out to start over. "I could never do that," she said. But I thought it was fun and the constant frogging helped me figure out the pattern and how it worked.
After Clappy is done, I have some sewing up of kid sweater pieces to do. Then, 4 y.o. guy (Little D.) needs a pair of socks, so I'll be doing those. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
