Just the Claps!

Saturday night harbored in a new finished object, Clapotis!

Project Stats
Yarn: Koigu KPPM
Dimensions: 54 inches by 8 1/2 inches (unstretched)
Needles: Crystal Palace US#4 bamboo circulars
Duration: Cast on May 29th, completed June 10th

Need I say it? I loved this pattern and project. It was very easy to get the rhythm of the repeats and soar through rows anticipating the dropped stitches. Oh, the dropped stitches were so much fun! One end was a bit unruly and curly, and the other was stretched into a point. Both were easily remedied with a little light steaming. Which brings me to the yarn, how I loved working with Koigu. It’s wonderfully soft, has beautiful color changes, and not splitty at all. Family, friends, if you like this wrap and want one, let me know, I’m more than willing to knit more! :)

My Stunning Model, Bandit

It looks neat! Congrats on finishing it. I can't wait to see it in person. Bandit looks so cute in it. You should make him a little scarf for winter walks. My scarf is coming along.

Thanks for the compliments on the Clap and the puppers. :) Unfortunately, Bandit doesn't tolerate clothing well; he prefers to shred and eat it. Too bad because I have a whole book dedicated to dog sweaters!
