Clapotis is not for me

Look at this, two posts in as many weeks. I'm on blogging fire. I've been thinking alot about blogging lately. I feel guilty about my orphan blog, but at the same time, don't know if I really want to post. I mean, it's like putting your whole life up there on the internet for anyone to see. But at the same time, the technology geek in me loves that I can keep my friends and family all over the country up to date on the goings on in my life...I find myself in a bit of a quandary about the whole thing. So, for a while at least, I'm going to try to keep posting...mostly to avoid the guilt, but my posts may be not too personal, yet still tidbits of what's happening in my world.

So today I give you some knitting. You may remember in my last post that I mentioned I had started a clapotis. If you google it you will find that it is a VERY popular pattern, which I had never really considered knitting...probably because I feel similar to grumperina (whose blog I find very informative). But then I saw one on display at Webs and I decided that I wanted one. A smaller version in lighter yarn. AHHH, an excuse to use some more Lorna's Laces Shephard Sock that was not a sock!

So why is she still talking you might say? Well I'll sum it up in pictures. Now you see it:
and Now you don't:

It was coming out a little too camo-ish (the colorway is Vera by the way) for my liking, so I frogged it, and it has already been reborn into a new project...which I will blog about next week! This of course was all before I came across this post, (can you tell I've been surfing the knitting scientists webring) which shows the color pooling changes drastically after you drop the stitches...maybe I will revisit the clapotis at a later date...

i've been facing the same posting conundrum lately, especially after seeing in my site statistics that someone has been checking my blog from my place of employment (don't know who). i never really posted anything work related, anyway, but now i'm a bit self conscious about what goes up there. lately, it's not been much. i need to ramp up my crafting activities so that i have something fairly non-personal to blog about!
