Mittens are like Socks

There is a great sense of accomplishment after completing one, and I am ready to move on -- but then I have to knit ANOTHER? Oh well, I suppose DH does need TWO mittens! Here we go again!

By the way, I don't know why the color looks grey here. It is really a nice warm, tweedy shade of brown. You'd never know.

Clapotis



This Clapotis was my birthday gift to myself, and I am so happy with the result! I love that I can wear it every day as a scarf, or wear it as a shawl to a more dressy occasion (like that ever happens!). It is knit with bamboo yarn (and bamboo needles) and is luxuriously soft and light. I now understand the Clapotis-craze and how addictive making one can be. I definitely want to make another, but I have a few other projects lined up first. I have to get the hubby and son ready for winter with some warm mittens!
