You can't have too much of a good thing

One clappy just wasn't enough - which is odd for me, because generally I'm not fond of knitting the same pattern twice - I mean, I have done it, but usually only for fairly small things. But another clappy was calling to me, and I saw someone (can't remember who, but it was a blogger!) did a clappy in laceweight, and I thought that would be perfect! Especially for the ridiculously mild winters in Sydney.
So a laceweight clappy has been started, using some of the Kaalund Classic Two (colourway Bushfire - what a perfect name for this colourway - it's the one on the left above) purchased at the recent Craft Fair. This will take a little longer no doubt but that's ok, I can live with that! I also figure it is one project where it doesn't matter so much that both skeins, despite being the same colourway and dyelot, don't actually match!!

You can see a photo of the WIP here (can't work out how to post a photo from Flickr. Am clearly a Flickr moron!)

Oh, that's beautiful yarn. I thought so just from the picture of the skeins. I'm googling that company next.

It's going to be great and a perfect choice for those slightly umatching skeins!! I have yet to knit a Clapotis!

there's also this: upload to blog via email, which I use to upload photos to my blog from my mobile phone, but which you can use from any email address.

Wow, even though I have seen your images in your blogs previously, seeing them together shows an amazing array of finished items. How rewarding to be able to view them when you are having a down day and think I made those gorgeous items.

J, I just upload the photo from my laptop to Flickr, then to my blog, then I link to it from the blog (to Flickr).

Ok, I've even confused myself now...

I think I have yarn envy. And clap envy. You might start another clap attack!
