I walked into the yarn shop with one task at hand. I needed to find the perfect yarn for my February Lady sweater. I found the yarn, Cascade 220 (one of my favorites), found the buttons and made my purchase.
I would have gotten out of the store with just that if I was there with just the kids. But, I had my fellow knitter/partner in crime/bff, Nicole, with me and she spotted the most BEAUTIFUL Clapotis I had ever seen.
The drape was gorgeous, the yarn was like butter, and I knew I had to have it. We looked at the yarn, made our choices and *gulp* bought it.
This took me about 3 weeks to finish. I wanted to have it to wear at Blogher, and I got it done...the night before the conference started and blocked it in my hotel room. If the Yarn Harlot has taught me nothing else, I have learned to block in hotel rooms!
I tried it on and fell in love all over again. I wore it to two different events during the conference, but since I took virtually NO pictures during the conference, you'll just have to believe me.
After the Conference however, Jeremy and I did some sight seeing. We went to The Cloisters Museum on Tuesday morning and found it was the perfect place for a photo shoot.
I really do adore this wrap and look forward to many days and nights wearing it.
It seems I am a very bad knitting blogger and neglected to add the specifics of this particular wrap. So, here you go :)
