Clapotis Fini!!!!! - Goooooollllllllllllll!!!!!!

Knitting for World Cup - What and Experience!
Wow, I actually made it with pleanty of time to spare. I finished it this morning before the final game started. But yesterday, truth be told, I was not sure I would make it. This morning I got up early and finished. This was a glorious moment as this garment was labor intensive. Fun but labor intensive. Anyhow, it was a great knit and I would consider making another. To make this I used Lornas Laces Lion and Lamb in Bittersweet. The same color as the original. I am glad I did, as I do love this colorway.

I must say though--that it was a bit ironic that I chose the bittersweet as it turned into a bittersweet experience when I ran out of yarn 2 rounds into the decrease rows. I ended up getting an adittional skein from my LYS. Unfortunately, it was from a different die lot. But oh well--what is a desperate woman to do under such circumstances? I was trying to beat the deadline and complete this before the end of World Cup!!!

Without further ado Here is my Bittersweet Clapotis:
