I've got 2 new finished projects already for 2009!
FO #1 - Late-To-The-Party Clapotis
I finally joined the 26,431 other knitters who have made Clapotis (Ravelry says it's 9,311 but I think it's more). I hope that the 35 remaining knitters on earth who haven't knit it - and some are friends- don't think I've become some sort of Clapotis-Have-Knit elitist or anything. I swear, just because I joined the club doesn't mean I've changed. Except that I was a little warmer heading outside today which was nice.
Riso loves to model and have his picture taken. He's too tired these days to sit up and pose but he started wagging furiously when I draped this over him.
Brian didn't wag furiously when I draped this over him. He gave me that long-suffering-spouse look and didn't say a thing.
I also spun this:
This is Merino/Silk Top in Pomegranate from Tactile. It's lovely stuff - I got 347 yards of 2-ply lace/fingering weight (it's not entirely even) out of 2 ounces of fiber. I'm not sure what it'll become, but I love it - it's super soft and I haven't even soaked it yet.
And these are post-felting shots of my father-in-law's slippers (finished in '08 but not photographed):
I put some non-skid stuff on the bottoms, to keep him safe.
I'm nice that way. Usually.
