ok y'all, I have a really, really dumb question.  I am 6 rows away from beginning the straight section:

Section 3 (Straight Rows)
Row 1 and all odd-numbered rows: Sl1, p to last 2 sts, p2tog.
Row 2: P1, k2, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k3, kfb.
Row 4: P1, k1, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k4, kfb.
Row 6: P1, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k3, ssk, pm, yo, kfb.
Row 8: P1, remove marker, drop next st, let it drop down several rows, pick up top bar with left
needle to form a new st (make sure this st isn't twisted), k this and foll st tbl, k3, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3,
k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, kfb.

Row 10: P1, k4, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k1, kfb.
Row 12: P1, k3, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k2, kfb.
Repeat Straight Rows 1-12, twelve times more.

ok, it's row 8 I have a question about because I want to make sure I have it right before I start knitting that section (I have a tendency to read ahead and screw things up instead of taking time to do them right). so my question is - after I p1 and remove the marker, do I put the marker back after I form the new stitch? Or does it stay off? I don't know why this is confusing me but it does. Anyone who can quickly clarify this for me would be my hero!  Grin

I don't think you do. But I didn't use stitch markers, just purled the sts I was going to drop.
But it doesn't make sense to me to put the marker back on... because soon after that the st is going to be "bound off"  kinda. By the decreasing you do.

Emms to the rescue!  I had to use the stitch markers - my little brain could not grasp the purl concept.  Sounds good to me though. Hopefully I'll get to the straight section tomorrow night and drop my first "on purpose" stitches! woo hoo. I think I'll get a little knitting in before bedtime Smiley

I started my clap yesterday, in black Microspun. I'm not having any troubles with it splitting, but I'm using larger needles than it calls for (I'm using sz 6). It feels wonderful. I'm going to have to do lots more repeats to make it the right size, but I figure it's worth it for something I'll actually wear/use.

I haven't worked on mine in months, but I do remember that it's a really simple system of X number of stitches between the stitch markers, and when you've added enough, you add a new stitch marker, or drop the stitches, etc.

Must dig mine back out too!

I'm knitting my Clapotis with a very wooly yarm (75% new wool 25% acrylic) and its using up far more yarn than I anticipated! I'm trying to decide whether to buy more yarn or to finish sec 3 now and go straight to the decrease section (I've already saved anough yarn for this bit.)

My Clapotis is quite short at the moment and as I've never blocked anything before I wondered if anyone could tell me if this yarn will stretch/can be stretch when I block it? What would be the best technique for blocking it too?

Thank you!!

As far as i know acrylic doesn't really stretch much when blocking. but i'm not an expert.
