This is Clapotis half way completed. It's a rather easy knit once you wrap your head around the pattern. Even if I lose my place, it's easy to find where I'm at by counting rows of dropped stitches and counting stitches on the ends. Thank you Joyce for sending me the link to Soul Knitting's chart! It's a mind saver.
The yarn for my Clapotis is Sisik from Dalegarn. Love. It. As predicted, it's a pain in the behind dropping the stitches because of the mohair content. Mohair sticks. Fortunately, it hasn't felted with the fiddling. I love the color scattered throughout.
Flow is finished. Well, mostly. I have a couple of things to do yet-I need to do the finishing around the armholes. But, that hasn't stopped me from wearing it. One night, I paired it with jeans and a brown corduroy jacket. Another night, I paired it with black trousers and a black jacket.
I liked this yarn a lot but found I had some issues maintaining consistent gauge on my stitches due to it's slippery nature.
Flow, pattern by Nora Gaughan, in Seduce by Berocca. They have a name for this color, but I think it looks like pistachio.
This particular project is all Laurie's fault. It's a learning process as I've never really worked roving into a project before. The yarn is Cascade 220 and the roving is Louet merino top. Soft, soft, soft. And squishy.
These are thrummed mittens. Well, one of them anyway. They're knit in the round on US size 6 needles. The little blue stitch holder is where the thumb will go. The white stitches are where the roving is inserted.
Here is the inside stuffed with fluff. For whatever reason, I think of Winnie the Pooh when I say stuffed with fluff. I started the first mitten yesterday and plan to finish it today while a stew simmers on the stove and the rain totals continue to mount. Laurie, if you want this pair, you can have them. Your winters are colder than mine and I imagine, they'd come in handy for a cold morning walk with your dogs.
