Aunty Carol's getting The Clap
Clapotis by Kate Gilbert
My wonderful Aunt Carol
Needles & yarn
US 6 - 4.0 mm
Cleckheaton Bamboo
4 skeins = 548.0 yards (501.1 meters), 200 grams
Stitch N Time in Phillip, Australian Capital Territory

15/03/08: My Aunty Carol chose the colour. This yarn is fabulous - silky, smooth, well plied, fantastic drape, gorgeous sheen etc. A strange weight, though as it is not quite fingering and not quite sport.

I have never done drop-stitch before but I am really enjoying the effect, and I think the Cleckheaton Bamboo helps to make this an enjoyable, mindless knit.

I have been watching Star Trek: Deep Space 9 whilst knitting this. I will always associate the show with The Clapotis, just like I associate Star Trek: Voyager with Big Sack Sweater and Doctor Who: Series 2 with Under The Hoodie.

26/03/08: The yarn is sooooooo pastel. I HATE pastel …. urge.. to.. kill.. rising…

27/03/08: Finished this at 2am - still watching Star Trek. I couldn’t get to sleep coz one of my kitties is ill but at least I have something to keep my hands busy while I fret.
