oh god, seeing people's finished clapotiseseseses makes me realize how much further i still have to go...

Hee! I know exactly how you feel!

I wasn't very happy with how the colour way looked when I finished up the increases section... it kind of looked like a bag of candy puked on it, but once I started dropping stitches it looks much better.  I should have some time now (well, once I finish unpacking and looking for a jorb, etc) so I should be able to start whipping out rows as fast as superman (I wish)

To all who have finished: Super great jobs!  I love the colours and how it looks done!

For my first post here I finally took a picture of my work in progress, my first Clapotis.
It's coming out so nicely that I already started another one on even chunkier needles and with chunkier yarn *grins* I believe I've been bitten by the bug...

I keep fearing that I will run out of yarn for this one as I only got 4 skeins of http://gallery.bcentral.com/GID4728469P4821929-Knitting/Knitting-Yarn/Gedifra-Yarn/Gedifra-Yarn-Fashion-Trend-Stripe/Gedifra-Yarn-Fashion-Trend-Stripe-4633.aspx that yarn (the shop didn't have any more) and the one on the picture is my last one... Keep your fingers crossed for me...

Love,
Claudia.

I finished mine last night!



I'm sooo glad I splurged and bought the Lion and Lamb! (Colorway is Sandridge.) It was worth every penny. Soft and supple, I'm wearing it now at the office to combat the A/C!

But man, are the yarn requirements off or what?! I only did ten repeats of the straight section, rather than thirteen, and still had to double-decrease on each edge towards the last corner in order to have enough yarn. I don't think my gauge is off, if anything it's a bit smaller than 19 stitches per inch--more like 17.5 or 18. But then again, I did measure over the pattern (before dropping stitches) so maybe the twisted stitches disguised the fact that the gauge was off? Beats me!

Wow that looks familiar. Nice job. Its gorgeous and I'm not just saying that because I made the same one! Grin



edited to say:

I had to order more yarn to finish mine too. I don't know why I just didn't do what you did. Oh well its done and given to my mother-in-law!

Yeah, the yarn requirements are seriously off... I just got to the decrease section and am out of yarn. I don't know whether to order one or two more skeins though... I used Andean Silk from knitpicks. I guess I could always use a matching hat (or headband, mp3 player cozy, whatever) if I order too much. Man, I can't wait to finish!

Did the kind crafster who hoped to do a spread sheet of yarn requirements for all out clapotis get to do it?  I still love the idea of a reference page saying what someone used, and how much it took at what needle and gauge, but I don't think I'm computer-savvy enough to do it well...

PimpernelSmith, I joined the Clapotis KAL yahoogroup, but haven't really taken advantage of it yet, so I hear there's a database but don't know exactly what data is in it. I might check that out, since I want to make another clap. (I'm not at home, or I'd give you the link--should be easy to find with google though--sorry!)

Here's the link - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Clapotisknitalong2005/
The databases have yarn, amount used, needle size and finished size plus any comments. Plus many members have used all sorts of yarn so can help with any questions about yarn requirements as well as about the pattern.

Hi all.

I'm running home right now to see if I have enough yarn to start Clapotis. I've been wanting to make this for a very looooooooooong time. Too bad I didn't start it sooner. I'd make a great Mother's Day gift.

There are some beautiful pics on here. You all do nice work.
