the eight year old WIP...

and it's still in progress...

here it is...

(picture later, flickr not cooperative at the moment)

I uncovered it in the very bottom of my yarn stash. It started out as a sweater for Em-Em, who was then just a puppy.
Well she grew quickly, and I forgot all about it. This was way before I learned to knit. It's crochet, and I can't even find the pattern. I like the crochet ribby effect, I think it's a double crochet into the front then back of the stitches. To frog or not to frog... Well if I find the pattern, I can knit crochet it for the new puppy I'm planning to get this spring...

At the beginning of the month, I had plans to finish up all the WIP's.It hasn't been a very productive month. No significant progress on the PBS or the Katia Shawl. I've got a cuff on the 2nd Highland glove and I'm starting the 2nd sleeve of Klaralund. Maybe if I get to stay home tomorrow, I can finish something.

I've read a lot of good things about the knit picks house brand yarns. My favortie is Cari's "It's f***ing fantastic." An excellent review. Consise. Simple, To the point. I placed an order last week. There's even free shipping. I've ordered some merino, alpaca lace weight, and the self stripey sock yarns. I've decided to try the 2 socks on 2 circular needle method.

I know that there are a lot of you that have knit Clapotis. It really is more than a shawl. Check out The many faces of Clapotis Now I can use my clapotis through the summer months as well ;-)
