1st Clapotis - OTN

1st Clapotis - OTN

I finally have bit the bullet and am starting a Clapotis from Knitty.com!

It's much easier than I first thought - Hanane walked me through getting it set up - and even let me borrow the right size stitch markers!

Using Reynolds Gypsy Cotton - it's a deep forest green color. Kinda fun!

Easy Beginner's Lace Scarf - Finished!

This is my first attempt at something with the word "Lace" in the name - from the "Knit Ponchos Wraps & Scarves" book by Jane Davis.

Very easy and quick for me! Eased me gently into the lace arena!

Garage Sale Finds!

Went to a great garage sale one of the ladies in my knitting group had today - got to add a few things to the stash. (I'm always needing a Cherry Tree Hill fix and have been wanting to try the Classic Elite yarns - and got not one but TWO of each today - along with lots of other yummy yarns!

I got a Laceweight Hank with enough yardage to do 3 shawls and maybe a scarf in the upcoming Lone Star State Knitters summer Lace KAL - I'm ready now!
