Project #5: This should look familiar — the ubiquitous Clapotis.
I had resisted when this was all the rage. I had continued to resist even after seeing a few first hand. It’s nice, but I just wasn’t interested.
However, once I saw Penny’s Clapotis, I fell in love. The drape of the Koigu in this pattern is wonderful, and the subtle variation played well. I wanted one, 4 years after the fact.
But it sits unfinished. Why? It’s boring. I can’t believe how boring this project is. Even the occasional drop lost its appeal after the nth one of these. On top of that, I lost track at one point and now I’m slightly off in the pattern. It’s not visibly noticeable, but I know it’s there and it bugs me. But not enough to rip back to find it. I just need to adjust it somewhere to get it back on track.
Decision: Back into the queue. I’m about 60% finished, so a week or so of knitting should get this finished and off the needles. Perhaps I can finish it in time for the 5th anniversary of the pattern.
