I'm finished, and leaving the lights on!

I can't believe I picked this up less than a week ago and I'm already finished. That means I let it sit in my UFO basket for a year, and all it needed was a week of love.

Well, y'all, I'm going to be feeling the love, because luckily it's only 46 degrees today and the low is 19 tonight. That means I will be able to wrap myself in fabulousness for about five more days, then I'll have to wait till fall. Behold, knit side and purl side:

Knit side

Purl side

Pattern: Clapotis, by Kate Gilbert
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Gold Hill, 2 full skeins and about 1/2 of a third
Needle: #6 INOX Express
Started: November 5 2005
Completed: April 6 2007

Modifications: None, but I did accidentally put 7 stitches in one section. I think I forgot a final decrease, and I had some wonkiness at the bottom of one dropped stitch to fix. But otherwise, all I changed was the yarn.

Would I knit it again? You bet! And I wouldn't quit!

I am not blocking it.

Its GORGEOUS!! Oh and you're not the last one. I've had mine sitting on the needles untouched for at least a couple of months now.

I'm almost done with my third Clapotis (LL Worsted in Bittersweet). I just ran out of yarn so have to order some more and wait to finish it up. Your's is GORGEOUS! It makes me want to start on #4. How many skeins of the sport weight did you use??

How many skeins did this take? I really want to make one and I was really thinking Shepherd Sport would rock it!

I know, I was excited about the cold snap so I could wear my clapotis for a little while again!

It looks great!

Beautiful! I'm getting that Clapotis lust again too. I wouldn't block it either, and didn't block my first one. I think that bumpiness is part of the allure.
