Well I took my own advice and started my "one day" project - the Clapotis! I am about halfway done and it is beautiful. I love how it is coming out.
I love how the dropped stitches look...
I'm so glad I finally did this project. It is coming out just as I imagined. The yarn is a dream to work with - it's Brooks Farm Riata which is a discontinued color unfortunately - but it is gorgeous. I haven't been able to put it down. I worked on it most of the weekend.
While I wasn't working on the Clap... - I was learning how to make two socks on two circular needles at Woolwinders. I am not sure I love the technique. My needles were getting all tangled up with my yarn and I think I spent more time untangling than I did knitting. But my teacher does say - that she things my needles were to blame... they were too new and the cords were not behaving. So... I may keep trying - but only AFTER I finish my Clapotis.
I got to spend lots of quality time with my boys this weekend - my pups and hubby and I enjoyed the cool weather and the changing leaves this weekend. I love Autumn.
In honor of the fall weather and the fact that we are approaching Halloween - here are some pics of the mini pumkins I got from the farmer's market.
