It just occurred to me that in the decrease section, all odd-numbered rows start with a knit stitch and all even-numbered rows start with a purl stitch.  So maybe in the increase section, all odd-numbered rows should begin with a knitwise slip stitch and all even-numbered rows should begin with a purlwise slip stitch.  After reading this and this, I don't think it matters as long as you're consistent.

The difference is probably subtle anyway.  I'm just going to start my clapotis!

Also ETA: Horse Power, I love the yarn you've chosen!  That's going to be perfect for spring/summer.

Wow, the Artyarns silk is amazing!  I love the colors and the look of it.  Horsepower, your white one is really pretty!  I like how lacy it is.

I've been slipping the stitches purlwise, and it looks good.  This is something I've wondered about in patterns from time to time, when it tells you to slip, which way. I usually just slip depending on what I'm doing in that row.

I've been working some more on my Clapotis but not a lot since I've been trying to get my Simply Marilyn sweater done.  It's done so now Clapotis is my next project to try to finish.  I took a better picture of my work so far so the Koigu shows up a little more clearly.  I just went into the living room and found my dog napping on it.  I guess I'm not the only Koigu fan in the family.

Thanks!  But you can't eat it.  My dog says that if anyone is going to eat it, he is. Smiley

After all of the buzz about Malabrigo / Handpaintedyarns.com, I ordered three skeins of their terracotta to join y'all in making my own Clapotis!  I'm so excited (and it only cost me $22.50)!

As a way-to-get-a-new-awesome-job gift to myself, I'm taking the plunge and buying the artyarns royal silk. I can't wait to get it!

I think this is my next project (need to finish a sock first)... I already have the yarn to make 2!

First up is a 100% cotton from Artfibers (one of my favorite stores!).  This was from the bargain back room and it's not on the website anymore, but it's called Andes and is a turquoise blue.

I also got the Knitpicks Andean Silk Twist in prairie for my second one Wink

Hopefully this weekend will see the end of my sock, so next week I'll be full steam ahead on Clapotis!

I am moving so slowly on mine.  So far, I have just finished the increase repeats and am in the last half-set before going to the straight rows. On the other hand, I don't mind drawing it out a little - working with the silk is a real pleasure, and I have grown quite fond of the pattern, changey enough that it's not total zone-out knitting, but without being taxing.  Fun!

I haven't seen this yarn in person but some of the cool colorways make me think it'll be good for Clapotis...
