Show and tell time

The mandatory "Clapotis in Nature" shot


Clapotis Fountain

Inaugural Wearing


I haven't taken a measuring tape to it yet, but with 15 repeats in the straight section, it is long enough that I can wrap it around my neck once and tie it in a knot. I think it is similar in dimension to a pashmina type shawl (but thicker, of course).

Wow!
Thanks for taking the shots outdoors. We got 7" of snow yesterday - loved seeing the green and growing plants! LOL

Your clap is beautiful.

I just joined this blog so I could say how much I like your Clapotis. I'm working on one now for the KO (in silk/wool from an ebay seller). I want to do one in ribbons, so I would really like to hear how you liked it. Can you post a close up of the longer dropped ladders?

Jocelyn - my camera is in another province right now, but you can take a look at my January 23 entry to see a closeup of some dropped stitches

That looks really nice. I love the yarn. How did you like working with it for this project?

It was the first time I used ribbon yarn. To be honest, I had always turned my nose up at ribbon yarns before I spotted this particular one knitted up as a garment at my LYS.
I knit it on steel needles (size 7, I think). The stitches dropped really easily. I think that the shawl may be a bit heavy for it's size - I used about 500g altogether. Overall, it was a nice yarn to work with.
I may do a narrower clapotis in the future using a non-ribbon yarn.
