...that French woman...

Volupté[F]:pleasure:sensuality. Clapotis +Sundara aran silky merino = Volupté ...a pleasure to knit and the yarn-oh,that yarn-is sinfully pleasurable to work with... I wore it the moment it was finished...I really don't want to take it off...I know it is still August,but I really cannot help myself...I'm loving this that much...I want to make another(and anyone who knows me,knows that I rarely if ever,like never,do that) I have this book,by Mireille Guiliano, and have read portions of it,but after knitting this clapotis,I may have to have a croissant and read it through...my paternal grandmother was born and raised in Northern Italy,but her mother was of French descent...so that makes me French...right? a little Brigitte Bardot? or more Jackie O?? Just me...that french woman...with the clapotis... And French women need socks,too,no? PS:The beach vacation was all that I could ask for,and thank you kindly for all the entries into the giveaway...I am organizing the drawing and will post the winner in a couple of days-with more on my travels.

I love your clapotis; the yarn you chose is like wrapping yourself up in chocolately goodness. That picture of you is so great, so stylish. And the socks color is exquisite -- just right for Fall.

Oh, definately Bardot.

Lovinggggg your clapotis. I felt exactly the same when I finished mine. I wanted to be taken out to a cafe for a cappachino.

I say if you feel French you are french.
