A few years ago I knit myself a gorgeous lace shawl made out of an equally gorgeous seasilk yarn. It was my first real lace knitting and I found I loved the process. However, I wasn’t a fan of the lace…in fact I’m still not convinced lace is my “look”, whatever the heck that might be. So this lovely lace shawl sat for a long time in a drawer until I got up the nerve and ripped it all out. It was no more. And then I decided it would make a lovely clapotis.
I’ve knit many clapotis(es)? over the years, but only have one for me. I love the drape, the more structured look and, most of all, the process of knitting it. It’s got to be one of my favourite go-to patterns that just doesn’t let you down.
So now I have a new repurposed shawl.
And something very french to take on a very french holiday with my girls.
