Still working on my Clapo-ktus because I had to frog the whole thing. I was almost finished, with just an inch or so to go, when I ran out of yarn. With this project, you weigh your yarn, then increase every other row until you've used half of your yarn. Then you start decreasing until you get to the end. I, however, tried to put an extra row or two in the middle before I started decreasing and I ended up running out of yarn with the tiniest little bit to go. So I have started over, but I seem to have run out of knitting time, and I haven't made much progress since then.
One bonus to having to start over is that I was able to increase the size of my needles because I didn't think the original was quite large enough.
No photo of my book, because my book is upstairs on my nightstand and I'm lazy. I just started reading The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I read a really good review of it on someone's yarn along post last week and I decided to try it since most of my high school students have read it. So far so good. As I'm reading it, I'm trying to remember the movie, which I know we saw, but I really have very vague recollections of what happened in it. So I think it will be like reading a brand-new book.
