i knit my first clapotis when the pattern came out in knitty and everyone was knitting it. i hadn't done a lot of knitting from a pattern at that point, it wasn't something i was used to or very good at. but i really wanted to knit it. so i powered through and ended up with what has continued to be my very favorite scarf and a promise to never ever knit it again!
i'm usually a promise keeper... BUT this fall i was teaching a knitting class at sweet d's school and there was a lot of interest in having our first major project be that scarf. i was hesitant at first, remembering how many times i had to frog, how long it took me, how frustrating it was as a beginner... but then we started shopping for yarn. at one of my very favorite places to shop for yarn. and i walked away with 3 hanks of dream in color worsted in the most amazing color and a new found excitement to knit clapotis. we knit it. and it was good. we breezed right through it and now i have to split my time between my 2 most favorite scarves.
