Gimme a "C"

C for Clapotis.
I'm loving this! I'm over 1/2 way and I can't seem to put it down. Needless to say, my Jaywalker sock looks exactly the same as it did yesterday. Exactly.










I have a feeling I'd like to knit the clapotis again in the Lorna's Laces Lion & Lamb but choosing a colorway is a huge setback for me. I was pleased that I had this yarn in my stash, I think it's turning out lovely.













It's -8ยบ today










Yes that's negative eight degrees. Here's what I found Casey doing about 10 minutes ago, soaking in what little sun he could find and snoozing of course.

This might be a stupid question, but I have to ask...when knitting a mini clapotis (I've knit the standard size already), do you simply do fewer increase repeats? That would make sense, but I thought I'd check with someone who knows before trying that.

Your Clapotis is beautiful!

It's about -18 F here today with wind chills up to -60 F. Brrrr... I wish I could curl up in the sun like Casey. :) I'm sure my cats are doing just that at home.

Stay warm and have a great weekend!

I am knitting clapotis too, but am much less along that you are. Great picture of your pup sleeping!

Very pretty colors in your clapotis.

I can't believe how cold it is! I don't want to leave my apartment.

Ok, I have to start knitting again. Everytime I look at your blog I'm inspired to learn to knit again....but then I get home and forget...and if I screw up, no one is here to help!! ahhhh!! So much pressure! ;)

Ok, I'm going to go home tonight, go down to the garage, and pull out the bin of yarn, and start a simple project. Here's hoping it works out!

It looks lovely!! I've dropped my Jays in order to finish my Clapotis too. I'm over halfway done so I might even make it by the end of the Olympics! Oh no, I'm not doing the knitting olympics. I'm doing the special UFOlympics :) Casey is such a beautiful dog. I'm a sucker for the long nose and floppy ears look

O.k. isn't that the yarn you were making the lacey scarf out of? Ditched it for a clapotis??? Hmmm. The clapotis is cool, but I must admit, it's a strange name. If I didn't have so many UFO's, I'd try one myself.
