How about now??
Yes, it is the infamous Clapotis. Back when everyone was doing this scarf in blogland, I just wasn't that interested, however in digging thru my stash, I came upon some alpaca from Over The Rainbow, and knew that it wanted to be just that.
After doing lace work socks and cabled gloves on size 0 needles and struggling with the lacework on River, this scarf is a pleasant change of pace. The knitting is almost as mindless as plain stockinette stitch and I get some derranged sort of pleasure from dropping that stitch and letting her ripppppp! Kind of like pulling a run in your nylons when you were young.....LOL.
The true color of these yarns lies somewhere in the middle of these pictures. The red in clapotis s more orangy than berry as it appears in the top photo. It will look nice with Paprika. Pictured in one photo with the Clapotis is some 20% bunny roving that I spun last week.......and that belive it or not is more Berry colored than pink. Hard to belive that the skein with the star is the same skein with Clapotis. It's funny how one picture can capture a color so perfectly and completely miss the other object in the same picture.
A River Run Dry
I finally finished up with River. As much as I enjoyed working on Birch, I can honestly say that I did not enjoy this process nearly as much. There was a definite flow to the pattern, once you "got" it, but I just didn't get the same sense of satisfaction working on it.
However, I do like the finished product and I know that I will enjoy using it whenever the opportunity arises
