Metamorphsis

Before:

After:

That’s a Clapotis and Cap in Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted in the Lakeview colorway. A total of 4 skeins made the Cap (the one I modelled in the pattern actually) and a larger than usual Clapotis (I weighed the increase section and kept repeating the straight until I had only as much as I started with left, ended with a tiny ball left over).

Now for some arty shots…

Packaged for gifting with Cap:

I gave this to my SIL who was thrilled to get an extra large scarf. My niece loved the hat and put it right on. Earning herself the Miss Dashwood hat I showed progress shots of a couple of days ago. I finished knitting on the hat last night. I need to attach the ear flaps and ties and weave in ends and find some buttons. But for now, I show you Grace, modeling her mom’s Cap:

    Absolutely awesome pics! Thanks for putting them up! I just joined the clapotis yahoo group, and about to attempt my first (talking about being behind the knitty times!)

    Beautiful…
