knitting plans

I am finally jumping on the bandwagon and I am going to knit myself a Clapotis. I ordered some Malabrigo from Webs for it. I chose the colorway Velvet Grapes. I placed my order on December 27th (only a week ago), and I'm already anxiously itching for it to get here. I LOVE Malabrigo. I fondled some in my LYS a long while ago, and instantly fell in love. This will be my first time working with the heavenly strands. I will make sure to add a pic of my yarn when it does get here, as well as progress pics of my clapotis.

I also have a baby blanket planned. I'm going to steal an idea from Twinsanity and knit a Garterlac Baby Blanket (based on the garterlac dishcloth by Criminy Jickets). Right now, though, I can't decide what yarn I want to knit this with. This blanket is for the baby that my sister is currently pregnant with. My main problem is that I want to get started on this before the sex of the baby is discovered, so it needs to be gender neutral. I would also like to use a variegated yarn. Cotton Tots has a few options open for me, but I don't know what it is, but something in the back of my head is telling me to look around a little more before deciding.

A clapotis in Malabrigo sounds wonderful!
