Yes, it's expensive, but OMG, it's so worth it. And Clapotis is a fun project - highly recommended. I'd put it off for so long, looking for "the right yarn" (but cheaper than L&L) and I'm glad I finally bit the bullet.
I'll be Clapotis-ing for the rest of the week. And I plan to limit my computer time during Lent - can't give it up altogether, obviously. Everything from banking to reading the news to keeping in touch with family and friends involves using the Internet. But I have a bad habit of spending too much of my evening online, and I'm giving up evening computer time for Lent. Computer time and blogging will take place with morning coffee. This should increase my knitting productivity AND take care of some other nagging bad habits with which I am cursed - like not getting household chores done during the week, or getting enough exercise. And finishing knitting projects. I've always thought that Lent should be used for re-evaluation and building better habits, and God knows (hah!) this is a habit that really needs to be broken. My vast blog readership (Hah again! Yes, I'm bitter because some people actually earn a living this way!) will probably not notice any difference, but I will, and I hope it will have a lasting effect on my habits.
