Almost Finished Knitting Project

Back in March of this year, I started a Clapotis scarf and even though I was carefully noting which rows I had done, I set the project aside for months and didn’t work on it at all.  When I picked it up again in November, I had lost my notes and could not figure out where I left off or where to start again so I ripped it all out and started over.  I won’t make that mistake again.

While watching the very sad Missouri/Iowa game last night, I finished the knitting.

It’s made with Rowan Denim, 100% cotton yarn.  It doesn’t look like much now but once I finish unraveling the dropped stitches and then get it blocked, I think I’m going to love it.  I have 2-1/2 skeins of yarn leftover but there’s only 109 yards on each skein.  I’m thinking of making these fingerless gloves to match the scarf.

    Good morning Judy! I think I might have to take up knitting just to get a pair of these gloves. Sometimes my hands just ache and they just look wonderful for sore, arthritic hands.

    I know you expected to hear from me on this one. HA. I’m glad you found the time to finish it. Loved unraveling the drop stitches. That was my favorite part. Those hand warmers are lovely. I knitted four pairs of different patterned hand warmers for Christmas gifts this year and I still don’t have a pair for myself. That’s usually how it goes. The cobblers children don’t have any shoes. Ha. Great idea to use up the extra yarn. Terry

    Thanks for sharing this pattern. I’ve made several pairs for a friend that does income tax for seniors at the Senior Center – with no heat on Saturday’s in the Detroit area. She loves them – and I think this new pattern will make up nicely for her birthday next month. Again, thanks for sharing all that you do with us. I read your blog when I first get up in the morning and it starts my days with a smile and a happy feeling!
