Watch my life unravel...

I finally got around to starting my clapotis. I bought the yarn – Cherry Tree Hill Silk & Merino DK in the peacock colourway – from Sandra Singh way back in October. I cast on this past Tuesday, and completed the second section yesterday. Here’s where I’m at:


Immediately after taking these pictures, I attempted the first deliberately dropped stitch, which went reasonably well. Minutes later I had a crisis, in which about 10 stitches fell off the needle, and I somehow (I have no idea how) picked up the stitches in the completely wrong order AND I dropped the twisted stitch next to the intentionally dropped stitch. It was a mess. My biggest problem as a knitter is making mistakes worse when I try to fix them. Experience has taught me to put mistakes away immediately and take them to Penelope, my knitting guru. However, I was eager to keep knitting, so I decided to try to fix it myself. I think I sort of fixed it – at least I ended up with the right number of stitches in the right order. It’s not perfect though…some twisted stitches got untwisted, and some untwisted stitches got twisted. I can live with that.

  • Good Luck with the clapotis, I am on the home run with mine having just started the decreases. I look forward to seeing pics when you finish yours.
