I know everyone is totally sick of this pattern, but I hopped on the bandwagon a little late. I knit it in sock yarn from Knitpicks, and added a couple extra repeats lengthwise and widthwise (so it was extra monotonous!). I really like how the lighter yarn drapes though.
Anyway, I bought the spring prairie colorway, which looked really sunny and cheerful and handdyed on my monitor. When it actually arrived, it was mostly just garish (spring prairie on acid, maybe). So as soon as I got it off the needles, it was in the dye bath.
I'm so happy with the finished product. The colorway is so much more subtle now, it almost looks like it was actually hand-dyed. Note I said almost. I'm certainly happy with my Clapotis (and the cost of knitting it), but I'm never buying from KnitPicks again. Action shots as soon as it's dry! Check out my blog for the "before" pictures and more details on how I dyed it.
