I started clapotis over the weekend, while traveling, and it's grown immensely.  Mine's a mini, I suppose, too, in that I only did four or five repeats of the increase rows.  And I'm not sure how long I'll make it.

I'm using a mohair/silk (maybe wool, too) blend from Brooks Farm, and it's coming out quite pretty.  (Picture on the blog.)   I'm realizing that I particularly like the dropped stitches for this, because I'm having a bit of pooling with the yarn I'm using, but the dropped bits seem to chop that up enough not to matter.  Most excellent.

Also, baast, cute dog!

I know I'm late in the game on this, but I cast on for my Clapotis last night. I'm using Malabrigo merino (my LYS finally got their delivery of many dozens of skeins of luscious Malabrigo -- I have been waiting so patiently!) in the color Amoroso, which is a gorgeous combo of pinks/reds/fuschias. I'm making the regular size in the original pattern and can hardly wait 'til it's done. I hope I can finish it before winter is over so that I can actually get some use out of it this year.

Thanks for sharing all of your FOs, your problems, your solutions, your Clapotis hopes & fears -- you have all inspired me and I will undoubtedly continue to refer to this board for your suggestions and solutions as my Clapotis takes shape.

Viva le Clap.

HorsePower: No problem, glad to help Smiley  Be warned the edges look really rough.  I think after I block it out really well I am going to crochet a border around it, to cover the rough edge of yarn changes. I know this will hurt the flexibility of the piece a bit, but I think I can deal with that. Smiley

Spudsayshi: Thanks!  She wouldn't get out of the frame for the pic, so I finally gave up. Smiley

So after making 2 of these for other people in lace weight yarn, I decided to make one for myself using Malabrigo.  Now, granted I used size 11 needles so it would be slightly open, I did only half of the increases and half of the straight sections and the thing was huge.  It grew about a foot after blocking, as well.  I had to rip back and reknit to make it shorter yesterday and then reblock the reknit part.  Such fun.  All in all, I'm happy with the end product.  I'll post a picture later Smiley

I would love to see a pic!  I decided I was going to make a laceweight Clap, so I would love to see a pic of one that's done. Maybe once I finish my olympic project I'll start it.

cinimonstk - the lace ones I made are posted on page 16 and 20 of this thread.  I haven't taken a picture of the one I made this weekend, but it's much darker and a thicker yarn, so it'll be nice and toasty for our freakin cold office.  Smiley

Wow, what a beautifully long thread. I just bought my yarn for this project and am anxiously awaiting for it to arrive. I purchase the required yarn Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb in Icehouse. It was on sale for $25.50 at Little Knits, https://littleknits.com/products.php?cat=182.

I can't wait to get started!

Thanks - I'll check them out. It's been so long since I've been through the thread....I want to start already. MUST. WAIT.

edit: Ok, I looked. They came out just purty!  Did you use one strand or two? I bought two skeins of the same colorway, so I was thinking of double stranding...but I like yours, they are nice and lacy.
