Lynn's Cupotea



Here she is, Miss America! Look at that colorway Lynn chose for sweet Katie's clapotis. I have another image to post of it, but I dont want to try posting two at once.....I'm just grateful Blogger smiles on me once again....Lynn oh Lynn oh irisheyes Lynn what yarn did you choose to use? We must know.

I'm still knitting tissue covers......cover #2 is well underway. I might branch out and put a faux cable patten on the next one....well, probably not. But, isn't it a fine idea? I need a little cable practice.

I'm still having fun with:

the contest post
finding funny things for the winners to go with the yarn
reading all your blogs and your blogs blogs
entering other's contests

On that note, I have to tell you that I named the family Rooster on a knitter's contest blog and won! I named their handsome white Rooster:

Russell Crowe.

hee hee heee heee
I get a prize next week. Oh I love to be the clever one!

have a funtastic friday.

OK, I haven't had enough coffee--it took me a minute to get the Russell Crowe joke. But now that I get it, ha!

LOVE IT! Russell Crowe! You are a quick one! :)))

The Clapotis is beautiful! Lovely spring colors! Clapotis is on my list of "gotta make these one day." You have me wanting to start now! :)

What a beautiful color combination! Nice angle shot, too =)

Glad to see you're feeling better.

The Clapotis is fabulous. And congrats on winning the rooster contest. Isn't it wonderful to win a prize for being cleaver rather than just lucky (although never sneeze at luck!)

Lovely Clapotis. I am working on my first Clapotis now (*gasp*). It is a fun knit.

Katherine said...

Clapotis has been around for so long and I still haven't knit one. I would if I could find yarn as beautiful as Lynn's. Please share with us what she used when you find out. And, "Russell Crowe" definitely deserved to win!
