yuvee - congrats on giving in to the clapotis.  If you need a little inspiration or motivation to get through knitting it post to this thread.  Someone will always be willing to give encouragement or at least commiserate.

Which reminds me, only 3 more repeats left on section 3 (had a frogging incident, ugh) will section 3 EVER end for me?   Undecided

Finished the Clap for my mom -- in CHerry Tree Hill Silk+Merino DK, in Tropical Storm.  Check it out on my blog!

I just finished section 3!  Seriously, this isn't a hoax, I actually did it.  I felt like this moment would never come.  Woot woot!

Congrats! I'm just about to start on a full-size Clap myself... as soon as the yarn gets here!

I just wanted to know if your name is from Salinger?  Because if it is, that's so cool.  Nine Stories is one of my favorite books.

So I've been working on one of these suckers for a while... about two weeks (until a week ago, anyway)... while knitting on my lunch break (about the only time I get to knit these days!) I noticed that about five rows down from where I was, I purled on the knit side... I've never done that EVER!  So, I began to frog back, when I noticed a little weird spot in the beginning from a split yarn that didn't stretch itself out when I tried... so I ended up frogging the entire thing. I was one repeat into the straight section, too.  Cry

Now I'm on the second repeat of the increases and it's driving me nuts!  It'll be a Christmas present for MIL, so I need to get it done...

SouthWest Trading Co. Bamboo works pretty well for this project - MIL is allergic to wool, and my LYS had this in stock, unlike everything else I wanted to substitute.  I like it!  Although, I have to say when combined with Addi Turbo's, it is a disaster.  Back to these wierd plastic needles I got for .25 at Goodwill.

I'm dying to knit with soy silk.  Does anyone who has knit with it before think that it would make a good sub?

Beatnik:  It would depend, of course, on the particular 'soy silk' yarn you choose, but I think most that I have seen would be perfect for this project. 

For example, I have been thinking about a Clap or similar out of Kollage (distributed by Southwest Trading Company) after I saw it here: http://www.knitpixie.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=35_38_144  That yarn is a 50% Soy / 50% Wool blend.  I haven't ever worked with it, though, so it isn't like I can vouch for it specificialy.

I'm using 8s because that's all I had free that wasn't a 3 or a 15... It's a little tight, but because of the colorway I'm using (Sahara), I really like the way it's turning out.  I may just tack on a repeat or two here and there as I see fit, just depends.  And I'm knitting this one A LOT more loosly than the previous one, why I'm not really sure.  I figured with my frustration, it'd be twice as tight!
