The Noro Clapotis!!

* Big thanks to Alpaca Farm Girl for asking me to link to Fiber Arts Friday....feeling quite honored* :) Check it out here ... Fiber Arts Friday


Oh yeah! I did it! I finished my Noro Clapotis!!! Ms Thang graciously modeled for me again. Actually I think she just does it to shut me up but it works. :P It took just a bit less then 5 balls of Noro Kureyon and I so love it!!! I didn't think to measure it so I'm not sure of the exact size. I also decided not to block it. I like the way it looks. The tip of each end does curl a little but I think that will relax in time.

Worn as a scarf in this photo.



More of a wrap in this one...front view.

The back view as a wrap.

Now, I'm trying to decide what to work on next. There will be another Clapotis or two in the future but for now I'm taking a break from that. I might cast on a pair of socks if I can find a pattern that I really like.

I also did manage to get in some practice on my crochet today. I am kinda excited but waiting to see what my "teacher" says about what I did. I emailed Brian a photo to give me advice and see how I did. I even made a little granny square using a YouTube video. It is not pretty but it does kinda look like a granny square. :P

It's late and I am off to bed. Hope you all had a great weekend. And Happy Birthday to Cat!!!! I think she turns 21 today. lol Night all! Hugs!
