The only girl who hasn’t knit a Clapotis just started one! Really. I literally feel like I am the only person in America who hasn’t knit this charming little pattern from Knitty.Com. I contemplated several different yarns, including some Seasilk and the Lorna’s Laces it was written for, and finally decided on this lovely Debbie Bliss Silk Alapaca, which feels divine slipping through my fingers.
I am not all that big on New Year’s resolutions. Instead, I’m going to write out a list of everything that I knit last year. Little things and big things. I’m going to remind myself that I am a woman capable of accomplishments — important ones, pretty ones, even trivial ones. I have "sticktoitivness," dedication, perseverance. Not to make too much out of it, but knitting in many ways is a metaphor for the person I feel like I’m constantly trying to grow into.
