How many ounces/grams of fibre did that take?  You have now become my hero!  I've been hemming and hawing about spinning fibre for a clap, but I just haven't been inspired.  UNTIL NOW! So gorgeous!

Thanks, guys!  It was about 1/2 a pound, but I actually have another half pound of the same fibre just in case.  If I don't need it, I'll probably knit a second clap for my mom.  Smiley

Yes, folks, I spun this up out of 100% Merino wool and then knit it into a Clapotis.  I'm rather happy with it, although the knitting part was SO boring.  Also, the brooch is a vintage piece out of my grandmother's collection.  More info on my blog!
