Why Clapotis is like reading the Da Vinci Code

10 Mar 2005

Knitting Clapotis was a lot like reading the Da Vinci Code. Here's why:

1. There's some impressive mathematics in there somewhere but if you don't understand it it has no effect on you being able to finish it.
2. There's plenty of heresy (dropping stitches is knit heresy whilst the DaVinci Code is full of religious heresy).
3. After a drab start, there's a really long predictable bit in the middle that goes on and on.
4. Suddenly it starts moving very fast (when you're dropping at both ends) and for a frightening moment you think it's not going to meet up in the middle properly.
5. At the end, all loose ends are conveniently tidied up or hidden.
6. It's long.
7. It looks heavier than it is.
8. A lot of people have finished it at least once.
9. Once you get into it, it's hard to put down.

The only difference to me is that I enjoyed Clapotis more than the Da Vinci Code.

As you can probably guess, I finished the Clapotis. That's why I haven't been writing very much this week. I am 'blocking' it (sort of) at the moment. The pictures are on their way soon.

Now I am at a bit of a loose end, I don't have any projects in mind to start, and I am not ready to face that WIP cupboard just yet. So I think I'll just go blog-surfing. Bye for now.
