Fortune_32: I bought 3 balls of bamboo and i ended up using 2 and a bit (but on bigger needles).. and after seeing a photo of your project I decided to make a clapotis scarf out of the remainder.  Grin i think the bamboo yarn would make a lovely tanktop!

I looooooove the drape and sheen the bamboo has! It's silky, but it doesn't catch the same way silk does on my fingers (cuz they're still a little winter-dry & flaky! I guess I need some cuticle cream! Hehe)

I bet a bamboo tank would be great! I just wonder if I'll have enough yardage leftover, after I finish my clap! I've been meaning to make a shrug for a while now, I wonder if I could get away with long sleeves, or if I'll have to settle for short...

ETA: Neekie - I just went back and looked at your clap, it's beautiful! I didn't realize you gave it away, so I was puzzled as to why you'd want another so soon! LOL Silly me! Of course you'd need at LEAST one for yourself! Hahaha!

So, question for you guys - I'm into the decrease section, and I'm a little confused... The pattern says
Quote
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, drop next st and form new st as for previous dropped st, k this st tbl, ssk.
Row 10: P1, k4, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, remove marker, ssk.
Row 12: P1, k3, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k3, ssk.

But on row #10 - shouldn't it be

P1, k4, k tbl, [k1, k tbl, k3, k tbl] to last marker, k1, k tbl, k4, ssk.

Huh I don't think I've screwed anything up yet, but I have 8 sts after my last marker after completing row #9. Didn't I just drop 2 markers on row #8??? (I did!) And, the fact that it doesn't mention bringing the bar up & knitting it through the back loop makes me think I might be right. Please help!!!

It doesn't say to drop the marker in the bolded part of row 8, just to drop the stitch. You do pick up the bar on row 8 and ktbl, and then after you ssk you would have 2 stitches left after the last marker. All this means is that you have to pretend the marker is there, but you know where it should be--two stitches in from the end.

 Shocked I love that bamboo clapotis.

I swore I'd never make another one, even though I love mine, but if I could have that yarn... I might have to.

I finally CO for the Clapotis a couple days ago & I am getting ready to start my straight rows.  I didn't use a wool blend as in Colorado in the Denver area, I don't really need wool year round.  Also, I am pretty sensitive to some wools.  Even some wools that have felt extremely soft to me in the skein have felt itchy to me after knitting up.  So, I am using (I know someone is going to scream here) Caron Simply Soft Shadows in the color called Fuschia Flare.  It is 100% acrylic but is so soft.  It is a pretty fuschia color with shadows here & there of a purple/blue tint. 

I'm sure no one would scream. Simply Soft is held in pretty high regard around here. If you go back a good chunk of pages you'll find my first clap which was a mini version in the green Simply Soft Shadows. Many people have made theirs out of Simply Soft as well. I've seen grey, blue, and hot pink so far and heard of many more.
I just bought a bunch of SSS on sale at ACMoore for two more claps. I'm making a big one in Mardi Gray and another mini one for my dad in the black/brown/cream-ish colorway.
I've made one out of SWS and I'm working on a Malabrigo one but the SSS one is my all time favorite knitted item. The Malabrigo is going to be divine but not as versitile as my current or future SSS versions.

I might scream about fuschia though. Wink (just kidding!)

Squeeee! It's finished!!! And, if you can't tell, I'm super pleased with my newly finished object! I wish I didn't have to go to passover tonight (@ my in-laws!) so I could stay home and post pics! LOL Is that bad? I will be snapping pics & posting them tomorrow, though!
