joining the masses
I'm joining the thousands of other knitters who've made the Clapotis, a scarf/wrap featured a few years ago in Knitty.com. A few of the knitters at Cozy are making them in our new Silky Merino Malabrigo, and they're so pretty that I decided I needed one, too.
But I had this wonderful wool/mohair mystery yarn in my stash from a trip to New England a few years ago. My mom took me on a tour with her, and we were strolling around Plymouth, MA when we saw Knitting Treasures, a lovely yarn shop. This yarn is my Plymouth souvenir! The label is long gone, but I was able to guestimate the yardage at 600. Probably enough for a slightly altered version of Clapotis! I'm about 2/3 of the way through.
