Completed Project: The Clapotis Wrap

Woo-hoo! I finally finished Kate Gilbert’s Clapotis pattern in Knitty! Yes, I started the project in March, but I had put it aside this summer to sew.

I was concerned that now that it’s cooler outside that the wrap wouldn’t be warm enough, but with the Noro Silk Garden yarn, it’s very cozy. Also, since the width of the wrap is pretty substantial, when you wear it as a scarf, it can almost be too warm. I’ll have to let you know when the temperatures dip below 30 degrees, though. I’m sure I’ll be thankful for its warmth! 

Overall I’m very happy with the result. The Noro Silk Garden yarn was a little difficult to work with when dropping stitches, but other than that, no complaints.

I’ll be adding this to my winter scarf wardrobe.

So far for 2012, the completed knitting project tally is 1 sweater, 1 scarf/wrap, 1 pair of gloves and 3 hats. I think that’s pretty darn excellent, if I don’t say so myself.

I have already cast on stitches for my next project. All I can say now, is that song in my head when I’m knitting it is from an 80’s commercial. “So say goodbye a little longer…Make it last a little longer…Give your breath long-lasting freshness with Big Red!”
