Project Spectrum Postcard Swap

I was coming home from a beauty parlour (feeling renewed for Spring! ^^), and I noticed something in my letterbox. Wow! It was an envelope from my Project Spectrum Postcard Swap pal, Evelyn! I immediately grabbed my knitting needle, size 3 (mind you, knitting needle! ^^) and opened the envelope.
Here's what I found inside:

A beautiful collage of flowers and angel, in yellow and orange, of course! And you probably cannot see it, but the angel is glued onto a painted fabric. Inside I found some wishes, thank you very much, Evelyn, I hope that my postcard gets to you soon! ^-^

I also have an update on Clapotis: I reached the stage when you drop the first stitch!
Frankly speaking, I was a bit hesitant to do it, because, you know, usually when you drop a stitch it is a small disaster for a project, and here I was supposed to do it on purpose!... But then I fought with my prejudice and just ... let it go! ^^
It looks like that:

It was fun and I can't wait to drop the following ones! ^^

(Can you see that I'm taking photos on my balcony? Of course, you can't, you can only see the sunshine, but this is my green table on my balcony. ^^)


  1. Congrats on dropping that first stitch! I have made 2 clapotis and I remember how hard it was that first time but afterwards it gets fun to drop them and watch them unravel all the way down. Luckily they stop at the bottom. Love the ring too!

  2. Thanks, Alison! ^^
    Yes, that was my initial thought - whether it's going to stop at the bottom?...
    (but then I also wondered what happen to the markers on the needles - if they stay within the knitted fabric after you have finished the row you had them?... Silly concerns of an unexperienced knitter! ^^)

  3. I am right at that point myself! Haven't had a chance to post about it. I dropped the stitch all the way down last night and felt very weird about it.
    Actually, you remove the markers as you move along the stitches.
