Same Song Different Versus...

I never thought that I would be one of those people who was so taken with a pattern that they had to knit fifty zillion of the same thing. Besides these and these, I haven't made duplicates of too many other projects. I went on a mini yarn crawl with a friend last weekend and when we hit this place I went nuts. We were there to see a purse designer but I got distracted by some yarn. I have never knit with this before so I was excited to purchase some. The minute I saw the colors, I was a goner. I loved the richness of this yarn and I had to buy some. I purchased 2 skeins and was even more happy that I got 20% off. That made it the find for the day! I even had a project in mind when I bought the yarn. I have started the project...

No, your eyes are not deceiving you...it's another Clapotis. I just saw the pattern when I looked at they yarn. I like the first one that I knit, but the pattern of the colors was not was I was hoping for. So I am going to donate the first one to the local guild and keep this one.



Here is a close-up of how the colors are evolving. I am so pleased with this yarn. I would knit another project using this yarn.I am only on section on and the 6th repeat. I am a little nervous about having enough to finish the project. So far I am very pleased. Did I say that already???

I know what you mean. I was gifted some BH yarn. I knit a Clapotis with it, and it came out nicely. I like the colors you chose better, so I'm sure yours will be beautiful.

WW-Thanks. I saw it and just had to buy it. They are "my" colors.

luni-Good to know that you were pleased with your BH. I had never heard of this company before so I was really feeling like I had a wonderful find. The Clapotis is going really well and I am so pleased with the way it's shaping up. I can't wait to get it finished. My socks are on the back burner right now but hopefully after the Clapotis I will get them done. I need to finish them and the Lily Chin Shawl I started. Things are getting away from me and I need to reel them back in.
