I think I'm too busy to really do anything but a semi- mindless project right now - I need something that I can use to relax. Therefore, I have decided to re-attempt Clapotis:
You may recall that the last time I attempted Le Clap, I was trying to use two strands of KnitPicks Shimmer, which did not work. This time, I am trying Atacama by Aroucania Yarns in color # 501. It's 100% alpaca and manufactured by the same company that made the yarn for Le Fiance's skullie. The color in this photo is only semi-acurate. It doesn't show you the distinction between the mid-tone pink and the really pale, almost white pink. It's a little on the Valentine's Day side, but I think it's pretty cool. I can't wait to see what it looks like one I start dropping stitches :)
I went to Old Navy yesterday after buying the Clap yarn and picked up some sweet deals. I got a jacket for only $8 and a pair of those velour sweatpants for $7. Le Fiance got tons of cool stuff- he ended up buying way more than me. A real shopper- the only man for me :)
Speaking of my man- he came in 1st runner up in the CG Talk 3-D competition out of almost 14,000 entries!!!!!!!!!! Check out his piece- I personally think he should have won- he was robbed! (I would post the pic below, but the file is gigantic, so you have to click on the link to see it- you can also read the "history" behind the image). Awesome job baby! You rock.That giant photo is of her installation at "The Wrong Gallery" in 2004. How cool is that? Go Carol!!
