This Summer's First Knitted Project


This is what is on my needles-I'm one of the last knitters in the world to make a Clapotis! It is being done with a beautiful hand dyed fingering weight yarn from NH Knitting Mama. The idea is to drop one stitch every 12 rows or so to create the ladders. This will be a very light weight sheer sort of summer shawl. Thanks for looking.
