Clapotis (number 2)

I made another one of those scarf/shawl things (Clapotis)



I like the yarn on this one better. It's all my favorite colors: blue, purple and chevy-turquoise. This is for my aunt who lives in SF. I hope she likes it. I think it's pretty but Mom likes the other one I made better.

Looks like the strike might be ending. It's about bloody time. With school again, I think I'll take a break from knitting. There's nothing I really want to knit at the moment. I do want to make a sweater, but that will have to wait till the summer for sure. I should be concentrating on school anyway.

I finished my scarf/shawl thing. It looks big, but it curls up so that you can wear it like a scarf, and it's nice and cozy.

Here it is on my back:

And here it is outside - the chair was cold. This is pretty much the actual color.

Yeah, I'm pleased with how it came out. It was a lot of work, but it wasn't hard or anything. It just took a week and a half, with a couple hours of knitting a day.
