Knittin' mittens for ma kittens!

No, please!! Anything but the clap!!

Something strange is happening to me. I feel like I don't even know myself anymore.

For the first time ever, I'm craving a clapotis. Why? Why me? Why now? Why does this rather humble little pattern, that everyone and their grandma has knit a thousand times over, suddenly appeal to me so much?

I suppose the reason is simple, really. I need something to justify my overwhelming lust for this.

  • I think everyone succumbs to it at some point. Perhaps the pattern is haunted?

  • I held out for awhile, too. But it was my January project and I loved it! There is just something about the pattern. And when you start dropping the stitches....you just get addicted! Then clappy keeps you warm! And all nonknitters think you are a genius! I've had people offer me $100s for it, but after 3 weeks of knitting, it's priceless!

  • I can totally understand wanting to get your mitts on some Lion and Lamb. I just made Ella out of it to avoid making Clapotis, and it's beautiful in L&L too (if a bit huge.) I'm already trying to figure out my next excuse to use it!
