The Knotty Sheep Shop

Friday, May 06, 2005

I am HaPpY for several reasons today!!

First, it is Friday. Granted, on *this* particular weekend, weather forecasters are predicting that an ARK will be needed for transportation. I am quite despondent about the forth coming gloom & doom as I was traveling a wee distance for a yarn & bead pilgrimage. Won't happen this weekend .... woe is me!

Second, The Knotty Sheep has now collected over $200 for the
Southeast Llama Rescue! I am delighted, but I still hope to do a lot better by the time my self imposed deadline of October 31,2005 arrives.

And last, but not least .... I am ClaPpY HaPpY!! My Clapotis is FINIS! I love it and plan to make one or two more. I *know* I need to make one for a friend for Christmas .... but, this could become a staple in *my* wardrobe. I used Harmony yarn in the Amarillo colorway from Brooks Farm Yarn. I chose it due to my penchant for wearing jeans every day. I recommend the yarn highly. Wonderful softness - high luster! Well, what do you think of my newest FO?? ..... Comments, please!

The clappy is totally awesome and, being a jean wearer myself, the colors are perfect. Ok, when are you planning on staring mine??

That is absolutely stunning, Kary! You should be very proud of yourself, I stand in awe! (((hugs)))

One week?! It would take me a month to knit it. I love the colors! Beautiful job.

Jane said...

It's beautiful, Kary.. I love the colors and they will work wonderfully with denim jeans (is there anything else *to* wear on a daily basis??? I live in my Gloria Vanderbilts!! {g})

Lisa said...

Looks GREAT! Makes me want to finish mine. I've been working on it for over a month now :-(
The colors are wonderful too!

Melanie said...

Ditto with Lisa's comments... makes me want to speed along. Looks amazing. So proud & delighted. Great job. Now what project will be taking up your time?

Your clappy is lovely, it makes me think of the beach! I agree on how easily the clappy may sneak into daily wear ;) Great job!!! ...now I may need to make another one myself, I love your colorway.

Fantastic clappy, Kary, yay for you :) I'm tempted to make one myself, but I'm over-committed right now.

A beautiful Clappy.
Now I want to make a shawl size one. I still am in love with my scarf size Shimmer one.

It is really beautiful. Having finished one already and have both #2 & #3 OTN simultaneously (one of them will be scarf size), I know how addicting they are.
Great job!

Hi Sweetie! LOVE your new yarns - what fun! The ClApPy is so HAPPY - great job!!! Next on my list... as soon as I weave in the ends of the EC, which is now FINIS!!!!!!

I haven't been thrilled with the look of Clapotis, but yours has me convinced to try. It is beautiful.
