Clapotis and some other new FOs!

My previous knitting posts can be found here.

I finally finished Clapotis! It was in serious danger of becoming the neverending project, but after 3 weeks it's finally finished. I don't think I'm going to block it, because I like how it curls up as a scarf.


























I want to make another one now... it's a sickness I tell you! Yarn is Knitpicks memories in the "Redwood forest" colorway. I used size 6 needles, and added 1 repeat to the increase sectionand 3 to the straight section.

I also completed an Odessa hat, sans beads, out of Merino Style in Dusk.



I'm not as insane as I look in this picture, I promise! I need a new camera... I'm not totally sure about me in this sort of hat, but I bet I'll appreciate it this winter!

I also finished an Airy scarf, from Last Minute Knitted gifts


I don't really love this scarf - maybe in a bright color it would be nicer. I just hated working with the Kidsilk Haze, and I think I'm pretty unlikely to use it again.

My last FO of this set, Voodoo wristwarmers, in WotA Amethyst Heather


I tell myself that I can become a wristwarmer person. I like these, but I didn't love the Heathered wool - it was strangely splitty and sheds a lot. Not too itchy though, so that's good.

My current WIPs are a Multidirectional scarf, in Noro Silk Garden 82

and a Rusted Root sweater in Green Apple Shine sport. I don't have any pics of that yet, but so far I love it!

Whew... so clearly I've been doing tons of knitting on my vacation. And now I see that Knitpicks is having a sale... and there's a new Knitty... I'm cursed to buy more I think.

    I picked up your comment about the Clappy with "Memories" yarn on craftster. Came here to see the pic. I love it. I think I may have finally found a yarn that A - I like and B - I can afford. Maybe I'll finally make one.

    No need to block your Clappy, it's gorgeous as is. And I love your Odessa! It's one of my favorite patterns. I think I'll keep knitting them till all of my friends have one!
