wow, i love your yarn choices! is that uruguayan handpaint from handpaintedyarn.com, btw? i was thinking of buying some yarn from them. my LYS has some of their yarn (which they mark up beyond all belief, btw), and it is SOO soft and wonderful.

I fninished my first one and sent it off to my mum in the spring/early summer, but now i'm working on one for myself! it's sort of a half-clap, scarf width/length, in handpainted alpaca/wool 50/50 from interlacements. i can't wait till i get my digital camera again, then i can post pictures!

ohoooh Lasandri, those colors you've chosen are very nice indeed.

What a great pattern this is.   I still haven't dropped any stitches on my friend's clapotis just yet. :\  I'm making it the full width and I distracted myself with a scarf all last week.  ay

I love seeing photos of everyone's in-progress photos.

Can;t recall of this was asked before and I am too damned lazy to go through the thread again, so forgive me if I am being repeatative (sp?)........I am on the third set of the section two increases and this is turning out to be a very curly project at the moment.  Is this right?   

Thanks in advance for any response.

ANOTHER question........I am just full of them today. 

I am on the last row of the third set of increases for section two.  I am having trouble at the beginning of the row b/c I have one extra stitch that I am not sure what to do with.  I have recounted back and the number of stitches I have corresponds with the directions for the previous two rows.  So at the part where I should k3 then ktbl at the first stitch marker.  I have 4 to knit not 3.

What the heck do I do?  Should I do another k2tog right after?  But it might affect the dropping of later stitches.  Am I screwed!!??!!??!?!

I've just started my 1st Clapotis today.  i've been knitting for friends, lately, and moving so now it's time for a some self-indulgence. 

Everyone's finished projects are so DOPE! and there're so many great yarn choices.  very very inspiring.  my stash is kinda big right about now, so i'm using yarn i have on hand for a baby blanket that i just couldn't see my friend's baby in.  So i'll see myself in it...in a Clapotis...eating a croissant. 

Anyway, still in the increase section (and not that far yet)....glad to see i  didn;t totally miss the boat on this knitalong.

Ill send a pic when it gets to be something worth looking at...
o, yeah...the yarn in question is a debbie bliss's jaeger merino in turquoise and yellow. 
yee haw!

Hey Boo... waaaaay back on the thread, I had this same problem.  I just continued as normal with that extra stitch on there, and it worked out JUST FINE.  I actually frogged and re-did it at least six times, and I still had the extra stitch, so I'm SURE that everyone else had the same problem, but just ignored it.  It's looking good so far!

beatnick - thanks soooo much.  Your advice is exactly what I did.  So far so good with a few snafus but nothing that has been too much to handle.

This project is going to cost me my sanity but I refuse to stop.  So......

I was happily knitting along on the 3rd section when I noticed a dropped stitch.  I tried to pick up the stitch but it seemed to have nowhere to go.  (Hint, hint  - the stitch was on the right edge of the right side)  So I un-knit back to the row only to discover my dropped stitch was the stitch I was supposed to drop on row 8!!!!!  I felt like a real kn-idiot!

Has this happened to anyone else or am I all alone in this?
