I guess I'm on a roll, because I recently finished a small version of the Clapotis. I had 500 yds of Brook's Farm Duet, instead of the recommended 1000 yds, so I was constantly worried about running out. To make it smaller, I repeated sections 1 and 3 only four times, and section 2 eight times. But as you can see in the picture I had plenty left over, so I could have made it bigger. Nonetheless, I'm happy with the more scarf-like size.

baby sweater voodoo

I'm almost done with the sweater I've been knitting for my niece. This is the first item I've ever blocked. The red towel is soaked and I'd like to change it out, but I'm afraid to mess it up. I excited to finish it, I've been dragging my feet, so I hope it isn't too small now. The wrap design (from here) should allow for some slop. I hate sewing so much, it was only the Firefly marathon that kept me focused enough to even start it.

Me as a Simpson

So I made an avatar of myself at the Simpson's movie website, isn't it good? Everyone should have one! They have a surprising number of options and I really enjoyed the random avatar generator.
