Clapotis and a fun dictionary

This morning I looked up the definition of Clapotis. I've read other knitters blogs where they are working on a "clapotis" and I just didn't know what it was.

I found, by chance, a fun dictionary. Check out www.websters-dictionary-online.org or click here. And for fun type in clapotis. You'll see a definition but you'll also find the word in anagrams, braille, morse code, binary code and (my favorite) dancing men!

Ha! Too fun!

I found the knitting term on Knitty.com. It's described as "knit version of the French scarf. It’s knit on the bias so the variegated yarn makes diagonal stripes. And stitches are carefully dropped to make a pattern in the opposite direction. This creates a scarf which tends to be a little more of a parallelogram than a rectangle." Click here for the pattern.

Clapotis- your word for the day!
