These days when I’m not on Facebook, I’m over on Ravelry.com, “a knit and crochet community”, seeing as how knitting is my new obsession dearest love.
The other day as I was perusing the message boards I came upon a thread asking the intriguing question, “Has anyone knit the Clapotis?”
Naturally every time I saw this, the only thing I could think was, “That sounds like an extremely painful STD.”
Which was fine to think, but then an important gateway guarding the flow of action between my brain and my fingers broke down, and I actually wrote that on the message board.
(Important Side Note: For which I totally blame the Prednisone. Or actually, the fact that I’m slowly getting off of it. And my system is punishing me for taking away its PRE-SSSHHHUUUSSS!!, because without it I am Cranky McBitchyPants, but as soon as I take my ever-decreasing dose I am In Love With The Entire World. Well, except for the part that projectile-vomits all over the hallway and then wants to sit in my lap. That part’s a little hard to take no matter what I’m on.)
And let me tell you something. Apparently, The Clapotis? Is no laughing matter. Because except for explaining exactly what a Clapotis is (“a wide scarf/small shawl knitted on the bias with columns of dropped stitches that make waves on the purl side of the fabric”, in case you were wondering), no one has written anything else on this thread. And not only that-I’ve managed to shut down communication on the entire board.
Apparently I need to be a little more careful the next time I Use My Powers.

McbitchyPants….very funny. You DO watch Grey’s anatomy!!!!!
Have a fun weekend!
Anyone who can shut down an entire board on Ravelry is Aces in my book! Kudos to you-you can come to all my parties. I seem to have the same effect when I comment on any of the main boards there-it’s the cyberspace equivalent of when you walk into a room and everyone stops talking and turns to stare at you.

We must have similar grey matter ’cause as soon as I read, “Has anyone knit the Clapotis?” I thought. “that sounds like a sneaky part of the female genitalia.”
BTW, is your blog meant to be rated G?
If they’re going to knit the Clap, they’re going to have to deal with the consequences.
I *love* that you were able to shut down the entire board. It’s like you are the penicillin to their knitting Clap.
