Clap on a Rock

the "clap" soaks up some sun....

I've been quite curious about the Clapotis... ever since I saw Jen sporting her beautiful variegated-parallelogram-drop-stitch-wonder a few months back. I kept reading the pattern and thinking to myself, "whaa??" And then Jacquie gave me this awesome excel chart thingy and I thought to myself, "huuu... whaaa?" But now that I'm "in" it, I'm lovin' it. To be honest, I've become incredibly obsessed with it, in an "It's all i want to do, all of the time" sort of way!!! Jacquie's gorgeous rainbow sherbet extravaganza is a true inspiration. Sophie's is coming along splendidly. Clap on girls!! (and thanks for that chart, Jacquie!)
yarn: patons SWS in Natural Plum
needles: addi turbo circs 5.5mm

I have so many photos and so little time to post. *sigh* here are just a few of my faves.

a smogless view of our city from the island Ferry

I made these pink warmers for my mom for her b-day
and she surprised me with the fuchsia cables.

no pattern required -- she truly is amazing!
she did get quite a kick out of the thumbs.
(i cannot repeat her comment) mom!

I've been hankerin' to get a new tattoo but the tight budget
and lack of commitment are holding me back.
so instead Hubs the Artist has been "sharpie-ing" various pieces on my skin.
I am a canvas.

Super Secret Pal Package

The Secret Pal 8 exchange has sadly come to an end. But gladly, i received this most super package from my Pal:
• the softest skeins of Blue Sky Cotton
in Orange Zest and Salsa
• the cutest bamboo circs
• a groovy little yarn & needle pin
• theee most darkest chocolate ever!
• a most awesome framed creation, Technicolour Elvis,
autographed by my pal

it's been great playing the SP8 game. I quite enjoyed it and perhaps will give it another go sometime in the new year. Thanks to the hostesses with the mostestess at SP8 and to Dean, the Giftin' Machine!

Feliz Cumpleaño

wishing a very feliz cumpleaño to my beautiful ma. te deseo todo lo mejor. wishing her the very best. te quiero mucho. how i love her so. thanks to mami, i am here. not only here and good and happy, but here -- knitting and slackely blogging about it. She has an incredible knack of taking a pattern and making it her own. She has an awesome talent of creating her own knit-art and coming up with gorgeous pieces. She has the warmest way of making us laugh and feel loved and cared for. and a delectable flair for stuffing us full of guiso and other scrumptious snacks.
Happy Birthday, Mami! love you mucho, tu hijita
-- La Tejedora, xo.
