Fever inspired knitting

I couldn't sleep last night so for some reason I just got up, got the needles and yarn for a project I've been dying to make but has been intimidating me a little. This is the beginning of my (first?) Clapotis from Knitty.

Note the use of the previously described stitchmarkers! Ok, so it doesn't look like much now, but I can't believe how easy this pattern is. For some reason when I had read through it before starting it just looked so hard. Maybe it was the required 18 stitchmarkers? But in the end it just goes step by step, and it's making a lot of sense. I'm using Noro Silk Garden, as an unabashed imitation of Cari's Clapotis from Dogs Steal Yarn. If you've never read the post in her blog called Thirteen ways of looking at Clapotis, go read it now. It's just so great. So I know this is not very original but hey, imitation can be flattery right?

Wow, that looks great! I think it'll be gorgeous in that color. I never thought I'd make one myself...but you're changing my mind :).
