what am I?

noro4what

7 skeins of Noro Silk Garden in some fiery reds, oranges and other some other more eathy tones...Who guessed Clapotis? I have dropped my fourth stitch - it's a wierd business - dropping stitches on purpose. I am torn about it, Silk Garden might be more rustic than I was hoping but other Claps in the same yarn are hot! It is damn boring knitting but I couldn't help myself...I crave the point (about every 12 rows or so) where I can slip a stitch off of the needle into oblivion. I have been like a squirrel collecting nuts for winter - each time I get to my LYS I would grab a skein of #84. One shade of pink makes me think of some great lipstick each time I get to it - pucker up!

I'm excited - I just learned that my last post inspired someone to join Paperbackswap.com - woot woot! I have received three books in pristine shape this week and sent two more out - I *heart* books! If you mosey over to A Caffienated Yarn - check out Jodi's pretty sock in the Cider Moon Magnolia colorway - it rocks. I ran right over to Cider Moon - because I am going to need some of that plus Asbury Park - and their store is empty until June 18...*sob*...more time to fantasize about all of the pretty colors.

Yay! Another PBSer!!

What a drooling yarn! But I am voting against Clapotis - this is great shawl, but there are soooo many of that in the world ... and there are sooooooo many amazing lacey scarves...

Oh, this is going to look amazingly beautiful with this most awesome yarn - I'm looking forward to seeing more of it! Noro rocks big time! Happy Knitting!

Thanks for the mention and link! You certainly did inspire me!

I love that shade of Silk Garden. It would make a gorgeous clapotis. Or something else, too. Monica over at Smoking Hot Needles has a free pattern for a pretty Sakura lace shawl that would probably adapt well to Silk Garden.

I'm also making a clap out of silk garden. Yes, very boring knit, but I love dropping the stitches!

Sad but true that some of the most beautiful finished pieces are so boring to knit! I think that yarn is stunning!

I made a Clapotis a couple of years ago and it continues to be my favorite winter wrap. It was well worth the pain and I plan on making another one soon. That is gorgeous yarn and I love how you piece-mealed it together.
