A round of applause for....

CLAPOTIS
I have met the deadline and my lovely is about to have a bath to make her lush and lovely for tomorrows outing. I finished this afternoon and I have to say that apart from the 2 mistakes I made I'm really happy with my knitting in this! The colours have come out beautifully and the size is just right. I did contemplate doing a few more repeats to make it a bit longer but to be honest I got to the point where I just wanted it done and off the WIP list!


She feels so soft and squishy that any reservations I had about doing this in mohair and having it close to me (my neck!) have been quashed. She's soooo warm that I can see me wearing her alot as the crappy Canberra winters starts getting colder and colder!

The other two little lovelies in the house were more than willing to be models for a change so I thought I'd make the most of it! So..... drum roll please.... here she is.....

It was indeed lovely to meet you and now to get a peak at the munchkins. They make good models!

It was lovely to meet you - I look forward to seeing your bamboozle clappy. I've just cast on another in bamboozle, and we'll see how I go.

This clappy, however, is beautiful - so are your models!
