it feels like i have been talking about wanting a yellow scarf for a long time, since this spring, actually. clapotis in malabrigo seems like the perfect choice, if i were to have a warm, curly, handknit scarf to wear this winter.

clapotis is enormously popular, and it’s really not difficult to see why. i had a great time knitting this, and you probably can’t even tell that i adhered to the pattern somewhat loosely. in the end, i think the decrease/increase were all really out of alignment. but you really can’t tell, which is another reason to love knitting, so forgiving.

and i have been knitting quite a bit, next i’m going to finish zipped raglan cardigan for husband, then… i’ll be knitting a cardigan with more malabrigo, in frosted gray. i’m thinking central park hoodie. it’s just so perfect for a fall weather.

leaves are turning yellow - my new favorite color this year.
