Just couldn't resist starting with the SeaSilk yarn I got for my birthday!
Size 4 (US) needles.  Wish me luck --

can't wait to see how the seasilk turns out - how many skeins are you planning on using?

flash vs no flash

Almost done with the increase! Cheesy I gotta say I love working with Debbie Bliss Maya, even though it's demanding I go to metal needles instead of wooden (it gets stuck because I knit too tightly)
And about done with my first skein... I have no idea how much yarn the rest of the project demands. Do you think a total of four skeins is enough if the increase bit takes one skein?

i just finished my 5th repeat of the straight sections, and am about to start my 3rd ball of silk garden lite:



this knits up pretty quickly, although dropping stitches all the way down with this yarn is a bit of a struggle.

You can work straight repeats through the second and third balls and the fourth should cover the decrease section, if the first one covered the increase section.

I'm working on the theory that, providing I choose the right needle size, 600m of a yarn should (fingers crossed) do the trick of completing the pattern; the overall size of the clap itself correlating to the weight of the yarn...So 2 skeins of seasilk in the hope of getting a nice, scarf-sized clapotis.  It does give me an extra 200m, so I may get to add some repetitions.

I'm hoping I might end up with a scarf wide enough to use as head covering...

How long did you guys make your clapotis btw? (or how long are you going to make it?)

Mine at the moment is 65 inches but it doesn't wrap nicely yet.. so I guess I'm making it a bit longer..

I forgot to mention that I finished my mini-clap (the simply soft shadows one) Thursday night!
It's about 14" wide (stretched out) and probably about 90" long (corner to corner). I wanted it to hang down pretty far when wrapped all the way around.
I haven't worn it yet but I'm washing it today so I'll be wearing it sometime this week. I'll have to get someone to take a picture for me. Otherwise I'll have to take on of just the scarf and that wouldn't really show much about it.

My FearlessFibers Clap is coming along nicely. I'm most of the way through the regular increases, then I'm going to do a few more becuase 1) I'm using sock yarn & 2) I'm going for a shawl this time. I'm not going to make this one as long as the SSS one but it will be much wider.

In regards to the Silk Garden, I used it and there were times I was afraid I might even break the yarn getting the stitches to drop.  On the other hand, I never had to worry about the ensuing damage of a mistakenly dropped stitch!

Showing up with my n00b knitting questions again, but... I need confirmation in dechifering at the moment.
"k this and foll st tbl", does that mean.. knit the two together through the back loop? I.e. the picked up bar and the following, knitted together tbl.
Sorry if I'm asking too much, I'm really not an experienced knitter  Embarrassed
