Okay... so I'm calling in a pinch hitter!

Instead of one the classic socks or the clapotis... I finished another Lavalette for Emily's birthday!

What can I say... I like being flexible.

Technically this is Lavalette number 3 for me to make... and since I couldn't decide what to get Emily for her birthday I decided to make her this:

Emily's Lavalette
It's something she's been wanting to make or herself but hasn't had the time to make so I decided to surprise her.  Let's just say there was screaming and all around OMG's when she opened it!

So, alas, I have to finish 1 more project for my for by October goal and I have 2 and a half days to do it!  Please wish me luck... I'm going to need it.

If I don't end up making it... I've decided that I still want to buy the yarn for my sweater, I just will not allow myself to do it until I finish both the socks, and the Clapotis.

Quick update on the knitalong... we have gotten together and have decided that the Hoarfrost Moebius pattern is a crock!  Not a true moebius! Who the hell grafts a cowl with a half twists and calls it a moebius?  We've decided to abandon the pattern and look for something else... anyone know what we can do with 2 cones of Lion Brand Wool Stainless Steel?  I'm seriously considering channeling Phillip Treacy and coming out with a funky hat... I could always just make another Kusha Kusha...


  1. OMG!!!!

    SO gorge! lucky em ;-)

    i'm still thinking about the kal -- did you write interweave about that fake moby? we should get ulli to do it since she's the published knitter LOL.

    good luck on your october goal!

  2. Go, go, go! You are almost there!
    What a beautiful present, lucky Emily :)
