Exactly, the dropped stitches let in the freezing, below 0 farenheit air (that usually includes wind) that we're getting here. I need to wear something that doesn't expose any of my skin/head.

I've been keeping an eager eye on all the knockout clapotis you guys are producing, and as my LYS was having a sale I picked up enough (I hope) for one of my own. Hopefully it won't be too warm for Sydney- do people find theirs warm?

I bought 6 skeins of Eki Riva Babysilk Cashmere in Desert Sand , which gives me 600m of DK weight to play with. When I get going (hopefully on Monday) I will see how much I can get from it.

I wish I could pay that much/ skein as they have advertised on that site, but I got it half price, along with some Noro Kochoran and a possum/merino blend  Grin

I made my clapotis in a DK weight yarn, it'll make it thinner so it won't be as warm.. also it's warmer as a scarf than as a shawl obviously. Smiley so it depends how you use it as well..

Thanks Neekie, I was admiring your clap (Smiley) and the colours seem very beachy to me. If you don't mind me asking, do you live on the coast?

I think I am going to have to move forward my starting time, I have itchy hands.

Thanks for the links to the patterns for the matching hat and handwarmers.  I like the hat, but I'm thinking I'll stick with my plan to do Knitty's "Fetching" for handwarmers.  I've already finished one in the same yarn I knit my Clapotis with.  Very warm...and bright LOL  I needed something to practice cables on.  I've never done cables until I started this project.  It came out beautifully.  Can't wait to finish the other one.  Then I'll be matching.   Smiley

Here's the hat I made, and a picture of the clapotis.



The hat's a little big, I'm not sure what to do about it yet. It's made of acrylic yarn. It doesn't look bad, I'd just like it to be a tighter fit.

What if you picked up stitches or used crochet to add a tigher band, so that instead of fitting like a beanie, it would fit a little floppy, like a beret or the mary jane pithy hat?

That COULD work... it's a little long, too, but if I had a tight band and let the loose part flop over, it wouldn't be bad. I'll give that a try. Smiley

Amethyst, I love the hat! Apart from the fit, how does it look on?

I have just finished my second repeat of the increase rows of my Clapotis, and while the colour is warmer than is shown in the pic, I am thinking that it is a bit bland for a full size one. So, I think I will do the 6 next rows and then move onto the straight rows, or else do one full row more.



If I make another, full sized, it will definately be more vibrant.
