Go ahead...call me a lazy knitter, I can take it.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I cast on this 4th Clapotis for two primary reasons
1 - I can now almost knit this pattern in my sleep (and what with the benefit of that particular kind of multitasking I find such an idea very appealing)
2 - The yarn spoke to me and said that it wanted to be a buttery soft, drapey, subtle but stylish elongated wrap for multi-season wear.
The "Rule of Fifths" post on Ravelry was a huge help in re-sizing this
Okay. So it didn't actually SAY that. But it did shout a resounding "H-E-double-hockey-sticks NO!" to the other 17 things I cast on with it. So my go-to pattern of choice won by default.
I'm not too mad about that...
Besides...according to my Ravelry trolling, this is nowhere near pattern addiction. The wonderful Kimberly (aka somebunnyslove) just finished her 14th Clapotis earlier this year. [ravelry link]. I'm not sure I'll squeeze that many out of my own stash...but then again...
Summer is here in all it's blaze and glory (and bug biting splendor). I hope you're finding time to get your daily dose!
