The Clapotis is done.
I jumped on the bandwagon, spinning my own yarn for this project. It's soft, squishy and very versatile. I love it.
I picked up a vintage brooch from my grandmother's collection. It goes great, and it makes a lovely shawl pin. It holds the wrap on just where I want it. Of course, this will make a great scarf for when winter rolls around.
To be honest, though, I was rather bored with the knitting of it. I don't mind plain things. I love knitting stocking stitch socks. I even like garter stitch in the right scenario. But this was the same thing over and over. I grew so bored with it that I even hibernated it on my Ravelry projects page.
Finally, a few nights ago, I decided enough was enough. I spun up the very small amount of yarn that was needed to finish the project. I stayed up until 1:00. I knit. I soaked. I blocked.
Sometimes, being patient pays off, apparently.
