One last FO for 2007

Well, I got a version of the Clapotis done for my grandmother. It became evident in the week leading up to Christmas that I wasn't going to be able to finish a full-length scarf in time, so I switched gears and made it into a neckwarmer/cowl.

Clapotis neckwarmer scarf

It's about 2.5 feet long when laid out flat, so there's plenty of fabric to play around with. I added two buttons and buttonholes, so it can either be fastened with the ends crossed like how I have them in the picture, or fastened so it meets end to end, or not buttoned at all and held closed with a pin or brooch. It's loaded with options. I was really happy with it, and may even make a version for myself down the road. :)

Happy New Year!
