Bring On the Cold Weather, Please!

Here's my Winter Clapotis. Hopefully it will be cold enough to wear it in New Jersey over Christmas. The second photo shows the colors more accurately, they are actually kind of muted.




Project: Clapotis
Source: Knitty
Yarn: Patons SWS in Natural Plum, 6 1/2 skeins
Needles: US 9
Started: 10/25/06
Finished: 11/13/06
Comments: Dimensions are approx. 63" x 18". I have been wanting to try this new yarn for awhile because it is a wool/soy blend. I have a skein and a half leftover, so I'm thinking of doing some sort of felted project. This is probably it for Clapotis, the pattern is easy but very tedious and I had to individually drop each stitch. It is worth the finished product though!

I just checked and the low on christmas eve in NJ will be 33 degrees, so you can definitely wear it to dinner that night.
