See it and weep….

Hey IV’s how you all going on your clapotis? Hey? Hey? Yeah, I know what you’re gonna say, "I’ve got kids,  you don’t" well, phewy to you gals! LOL, I’m just giddy because, one I actually finished an IV knit and two (most importantly) I finished FIRST.

Ummm, *kicks foot in dirt*, however in my excitement to try and photograph her I aaah locked my keys in the car….with the car running, on a work day! Hilarious now, but not at the time! Let’s just say we hadn’t eaten breakfast and had a sudden rush of poop to the brain.


The verdict, she’s lovely. Lovely to wear, lovely yarn, bit of a ballbreaker to knit, ie monotonous AND I finished her with only metres of yarn left, Alison M actually ran out of yarn with six rows to go and managed to scrape through with ends. So a little warning to anyone knitting the clap with the lion and lamb…Also if I’d considered it further I would have made her a couple of inches narrower and longer, just how I like to wear my scarves, I won’t wear her as a shawl. I’d like to knit her again with sock yarn or Koigu, something like that. It is an excellent pattern.

    Way to go, nickers. It looks fantastic. (Don’t mind Emma… the stress of being a famous Readers Digester has gone to her head.) Besides, I’m sure she’ll finish an IV knit one day too…

    Absolutely beautiful! 🙂
    and I always lock myself out of my house, have yet to lock them in the car though! Plus it’s always when I need to pee… 😛

    It’s just gorgeous!
    I once locked my dog in my running car (we were leaving the vet’s office at the time) and it was c-o-l-d outside. A kindly park ranger coat-hangered the window and popped up the lock for me.
    So, you’d knit the clap again using sock yarn? I don’t know how to knit socks, but I love sock yarn, so that intrigues me. Suggestions? (Of course, I also don’t know how to manage the clap pattern, but I will eventually happen across someone in my parts who does.)

    Wonderful clap! [claps vigorously in acknowledgement]
    I have to laugh at the car thing- I manged once to lock my keys in the car, with the car running, when it broke down, in the middle lane, in peak hour morning traffic, on my way to a client meeting- and I had all the documents we were presenting to them…..
    Poop on the brain indeed.

    Love the Clapotis. I’m about a third of the way through one right now. Yeah, a bit monotonous, but good for travelling once the pattern is stuck in your head. The yarn is beautiful.
    My car went through a phase where it locked itself. When the battery dies the car goes into Super Security mode. I lived in fear of the car locking the keys in and stranding me somewhere while the alarm sounded for half an hour.
