I ran out of yarn with only 24 rows to go, which means one tiny little corner of Clapotis. This made me mad not only becasue I had to buy more yarn, but also because I am knitting this for the Knitting Olympics and I am using Lion and Lamb. Not exactly cheap to buy an extra skein for a couple of inches of knitting.

Ooooh. I would have gone back to the increase section and ripped out maybe 20 rows, or two less repeats of it, then knit the end. Or I would have started over again with less increases. But that's me - I'm weird like that!

Do you know how far you got with each skein? I am trying to gauge whether I will have to shorten my Clapotis or not, and I am also using the L&L.

I got through the third drop stitch row with the first skein. I just finished the 6th repeat in the straight section and I am maybe halfway through the second skein (not sure exactly). How does this line up with your usage?

I know, I am not finished. But, I am loving this project so much, I had to share an update photo. So here we go:






Isn't she beautiful? Did you see ma grande erreur? I didn't read the directions closely enough, and thought if I wasn't using markers, that I was to purl all the stitches between the KTBL sts... oh well. It still looks good!

yay! I finished my clapotis Knitting Olympics project with all the roadblocks that came my way. including running out of yarn (lion and lamb to be more specific) with only a few decreases to go. then the emergency yarn shipment showing up the day before the deadline. yikes! but I made it and am so happy that i did this!

Very cool, Spunk! It does look incredibly soft, and drapes very nicely. Is that a silk flower that you have pinned on it, or a knitted one?

Your grandma is going to love it; sounds like you'll be starting another one soon, too!

Great job!

I got two hanks of Knitpicks Shimmer to make one double stranded, but even on size 8s it was pretty thin (and too tedious for me to use needles that small). So I ordered another skein to do it tripled on #10s and we'll see how that turns out. It could be done with a single strand, but you'd have to use something like #3 needles and would have an awful lot of stitches to knit!

Yeah, I was using the Shimmer as well, on 8s. Don't get me wrong, it was a nice fabric -- but I didn't like working with such fine yarn. It's still partly finished, and I am not sure what I am going to do with it... I can't quite bear to rip it back, but I don't really want to finish it either. Smiley

I think triple-stranded with Shimmer would be lovely.
i triple-stranded with shimmer! on size 4s ... maybe i'm a loose knitter but it turned out great. i really wish i could post pics but alas, a poor student cannot afford a snazzy digi cam. i live in NYC and i can tell you, my clapotis is definitely not a winter scarf. we've been in a freeze recently and even with the alpalca, my clapotis isnt very warm. but if you live on the west coast, i think triple or even double will be fine. i just suggest going down a couple of needles to avoid a flimsy lacey clap. my clap has two full width repeats and then a bazillion straight sections. i think a full size clap would be gorgeous in Shimmer. Actually I think even triple stranded, it would be cheaper than a full size clap in Lion and Lamb.
