The freaking out has already occurred... But thank you SO much for answering. I'm not sure how to drop three stitches at once on purpose, but it should be like dropping one, right?. Like this: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/misc.php (the first one). But can't you only pick a stitch back up in stockinette? I'll have to work up a bit more courage before...

You can pick them up one at a time. Might have to adjust the tension on that 3rd one, but with a little patience you can do it.

I'm sort of lazily knitting 2 clapotis this summer.  I'm an ADD knitter.. I have about a million projects going at once.  I have plans to climb back onto the "Knit from Your Stash" wagon when I get back from my next trip.  That means that I actually have to finish projects I've started so that I can use up my yarn.

here's a photo of one:

I'm using MCY's wool/silk blend in "Exotic" with US 7 needles
Thanks to the high silk content, I probably won't have to block this much whenever it's finished. (if at all)

the other:

handpaintedyarn.com's Ejido 160 with US 8 needles.  I forgot the name of the colorway.  It might be Rocas.

ijsblokje - I LOVE the colors in your Exotic clapotis. It's going to look great!

Ok, so I was planning on knitting a clapotis for my mum in SWTC Bamboo but the shop I ordered it from (Angel Yarns) just emailed me saying it was out of stock and they had no idea when they'd get some more from the supplier. So now I need to find another yarn to use, any suggestions?

Oh, I just remembered, I also ordered 3 cones of a cashmere/merino blend from eBay. It comes oiled so I don't think it would stick too much when I drop the stitches and then it 'blooms' after you wash it. Would you recommend using this?

I think kpixie.com has SWTC yarns, you might find the bamboo there.

KPixie is where I picked up mine, for 85cents less a ball than Yarnmarket! LOL

Thanks for the suggestions. I've decided to splurge on some Noro Silk Garden on eBay.

But with the hold-up, I probably don't have time to finish it for her birthday in a couple of weeks so it looks like it's going to have to be a mini-clap instead.

After that, my next project is going to be this amazing scarf that I just found and fell in love with.

I finished my clapotis a little while ago, but can never get a good picture. Anyway, I decided to put up a so so picture. It's done in Noro Silk Garden on size 7 needles. I used 6 skeins and a little of the the 7th. I am pleased with the finished product, but I don't think I'll be making another one out of Silk Garden. I had some real issues with the random thinning and thickening of the yarn. My next one will probably be out of some Knit Picks Andean Silk Twist I got real cheap.
