Way back then I wandered into a yarn store, announced that I wanted to make a Clapotis and asked what yarn I should buy. Thankfully the owners were internet savvy, so knew what pattern I was talking about, but more than 2 years later, I am getting a little miffed that they somehow talked me into yards and yards of fingering when the pattern called for a much heavier yarn. Since the project is so long term, it is like a fossilized history of my knitting- one end has mostly twisted stitches, towards the middle I start some serious rowing out , where my purl rows are so different than my knit ones it creates textural differences between the rows. Now at this end I am working on now, things seem more even, but I also think my tension is much more relaxed, so it might get a little wider.
Also this week, I knit a Calorimetry (another internet sensation with nearly 15000 projects listed on Ravelry!) This was my hurricane knitting, and it is super easy as long as you use stitch markers to keep track of your short rows.
