clapette

Remember this? Yep, it's that time of the semester again. This time around, it's 15 pages on service-learning and the millennial student.

So, to distract you from the frightening lack of knitting around these parts, let me show you a FO that I eff-ed last week and never blogged - Clapette!

Clapette (by aswim in knits)

Trust me, I am much happier about this project than the photo above would lead you to believe.

This is the first project that I knit for myself with my own handspun. I bought the fiber at Rhinebeck with the intention of making yarn for a Clapotis, and I am pleasantly surprised that it all worked out as I hoped. I did make a narrower version, more scarf-like than wrap-like, and it's perfect! I even had yarn left over.

  • Oh, how beautiful! I've eagerly been anticipating seeing Clapette ever since you showed the handspun, and she is just as pretty as I thought she'd be.
