Devastating Heartbraking ;o(((

This is what happens when you handwash your clapotis made with Zephyr yarn!! The company really should've sent washing instructions or label with this yarn! Need I say more? No other yarn that I've handwashed ever done this to me..and it seemed like it took forever making such a pretty scarf with it too. NEVER AGAIN!! and I was wanting to make a pair of socks with the leftover?????? I don't mind handwash material but this is so devasting heartbreaking, I can't laugh about it right now!! I'm sure someday I will.

Its not the first time I've used the zephyr yarn either?

Clapotis II Finished!

I'll tell you working with mohair and drop stitches is a real pain in the butt! but the results are beautiful and can definately be worth it! I'm sure my mil will enjoy her gift. Plus it does break up the knitting of the clapotis by giving you that little breather to pull them down.
Still working on finishing up projects on this icky riany crapping month! All rain so far! YUK!!

Clapotis I Finished!!

Finally a negleted project long over due, whined for me to complete! Clapotis I is FINISHED!! YEAH!! Laceweight yarn, Zepher 50% silk/50% merino wool, sage. I did the pattern repeats longer but got tired of the very long rows, now it's complete I wish I made it longer but it's just fine. I love it even though it's light weight airy it's very warm especially these damp, cold, wet icky days, nights weeks that we've been having here in NE..
Where or where is that yellow ball of sunshine Someone else in the world just not here ;o(
Maybe next week well see it. Back to knitting clapotis again...hopefully tomorrow I'll get the clapotis II finsihed... Maybe! My hands, wrists, arms, elbows, all hurt right now going to rub up with something to help feel better so I can knit more tomorrow my poor achy joints right now...
I'm looking forward to casting on a few new projects, my bag is seeing the bottom yet and will need to be refilled this weekend I think...I do foresee Josephine, hourglass sweater, spiderman socks, young girls & boys sweaters coming to the needles and something else haven't quite decided yet...Want to get all these partial finished projects completed especially those for gifts

Wonder what I can get done next. So working on finishing a few UFO before casting on Josephine! I think I may get lots of goodies in the mail this week..I ordered more yarn!
