I'm making progress. Slowly. Someone should have warned me of how monotonous it is to knit the Clapotis. I'm not saying it's a bad pattern. It's actually quite well thought out. It's just than once you hit the middle stretch it gets pretty repetitive. And if you're like me and count stitches every row, pretty soon you've put yourself into a trance. Or more likely you've realized that a nap is the most important thing you want to do right now. But I'm getting there.
Originally I had planned to make this a very long shawl. I have lots of yarn. I don't think I'm going to do that now. It'll be just fine if I make it to the pattern dimensions.
We had the largest turnout for Dulaan knitting that we've had in weeks. I finished this hat earlier in the day but I forgot to take it for show and tell. In fact, I forgot all the hats I've been accumulating. That, in spite of the fact that I had put them right by the front door so I wouldn't forget. All too common anymore.
