Fall in a Box

Today I got "Fall in a Box" from my MIL.  She knows how much I miss fall and the changing colors in Louisiana and so she sent me some fall from Kansas!  How sweet is that!!

My Clapotis (pronounced clap-o-tee.....I think) is coming right along.  It still needs to be a little longer, but it won't be long.  I'm loving the colors!  It goes with everything I wear so I'm calling it a neutral :)

Thank you for all your comments about the mismatched baby bootees!!  A decision has been made!  I'm sewing the buttons on and giving them to a lady at knit night who has a friend with a newborn baby boy who wouldn't mind the mismatchedness of said bootees.  I'm happy they are going to a good home!

What a sweet MIL.

My clapotis is in a different yarn than yours, but the colors are identical!

The clapotis makes me shudder. What a task!!! It's beautiful but still... I get the shakes thinking of a project that big. LOL.

That's so cute that you received "fall"!

And I'm working on my clapotis as well - just getting to the point where I drop stitches....yours looks beautiful!

And glad you are giving the booties as is - I think that makes them unique

Fall in a box. Hmm, I could send that to Debbie Robson since she is living in winter now. It seems they skipped fall altogther.

You are going to love (even more than now) your clapotis. I wear mine more than anything else I've knit. Well, except my winter mittens and scarf but you know what I mean. Kate Gilbert is a genious even after all these years.

I hope Fall in a Box helped your homesickness. Will you get to go visit during the holidays?

What a sweet gift! That's one of the things I missed when we were living in Biloxi, MS.

Your Clapotis is looking great! Congrats on the new wheel.
