Clapotis & April Socks

I started a bigger Clapotis but decided I needed something a little closer to instant gratification. I knit this with worsted weight yarn -- Noro Kureyon in color 134 -- on size 9 needles. It is a little more scarf size and knitted up fairly quickly. I did three repeats of the increase rows which gave me a total stitch count of 59. The other Clapotis I'm knitting will be more of a stole size. I plan to wear it in the office because they keep it so cold in there. I'm fortunate to only have to visit the office once per week for a staff meeting. The rest of the time I am out in the field. Here's a photo of it blocking. I'll post after photos in the next couple of days. I began this project one day last week. I can't remember which day and I finished it last night.



I also finished my April socks for Sock-A-Month 3. These have been finished since the 1st but I've been a less than enthusiastic blogger lately. It's the Conway pattern from Knitting on the Road. The yarn is from MAMA-E and Brooklyn Spun's Winter Sock Club. I thought this pattern was really pretty in this colorway. Sorry but I don't have the name handy -- winter sunrise or something like that.



As usual, I am the worst photographer ever. Maybe one day I will take better photos.
