I have more Clapotis!

Just to show how big this thing really is

This is hanging from a door in my house and it goes all the way to the floor! Sorry for the crappy picture

Here is a nice picture of it all folded up. God I love these colors!

Alright enough of that! Toot toot (yep, it's my horn)

I went to my favorite yarn shop on Saturday. I HAD to spend my gift certificate from Christmas! What I didn't expect was to spend another $85 bucks on top of it. But what the hell! Right?

I am going to make this

I also got some sock yarn, PURPLE sock yarn. I am making these for me

Finally, I leave you with my mitten. The yarn color is kinda boring, but I really like how the photo came out. I have never made a pair of mittens before.

Your clap is BEAUTIFUL! Not that you did not know that already. What a fab match of yarn and pattern--they work together beautifully. Nice one!

Oh my, I had no idea that clapotis was that long! Awesome. I love that noro. You definitely picked the color I would have picked!

Beth, your Clapotis is very pretty! SOrry that yarn gave you trouble! The colors look great though!

I really like that Noro pattern and the yarn. Can't wait to see your project. The mittens are coming along nicely as well.

Have a good weekend :)

Hey there ... came across your blog from googling "clapotis in noro" -- but I love what you used for your clapotis! I made a Karlsro last fall, too, and it's a great sweater! Take care, Jenifer

Hi! Nice blogg, must mark it in favourites! I like your stuff...the clapotis went out great, will try to make one for myself (after X-mas) and I just *looooove* the jacket. Where can I find the pattern for that?
