I've been following this kal since I started my clapotis, and now that I've finally finished I thought I'd show off pics.  This is a bday present for my MIL next month.  I knit it in SWTC bamboo.  I think the color was plum.  And it took only 1 1/2 skeins.

Has anybody made this from sock yarn? I'm wanting to do it with some Socks That Rock, but am wondering if the yarn would be too light. Then I also thought maybe if I held it doubled...?

Someone posted one in the complete projects using STR.  OMG it was beautiful.  If I wasn't on dh stopid puter, I would link you.  But, if you go into the completed projects and look for another finished clap, I'm sure you will find it.

After forever, my clapotis is done!!  Silly School and moving eating up all my time.  My job doesn't start until Monday, so I had lots of "free" time to knit!

From this, the infant clapotis:

To this, the adult clapotis:

*sniff* they grow up so fast...

I wasn't sure about the colours once I got the first ball done, but I'm glad that I forced myself to continue.  Once more stitches got dropped it started looking much more acceptable to me.  I do believe it's going to get worn to the strawberry tea/quilt show tomorrow at my Aunt's church!

Edit: colours weren't so apparent in the larger pic... here's a close up of a section against the black:

  Colours are still kind of off, but close

Very pretty, Pharmgirl. I'm glad you stuck with it. Smiley Can you share a closer pic of the yarn ball band? I've never seen that kind before.

Well, I finally have a finished Clappy to show off. I started this Mid march and finished about 2 weeks ago. I got off of my lazy butt last night and blocked it. Here she is in all her glory:


She's ready for her close up Mr. DeMille:

I used Noro Shinano Color 13, about 6 skeins total, on size 8 needles. I have 2 left over - I really should have made it longer. The pre-blocking measurements were approx. 60 x 15 and now are 74 x 25.  Pretty damn good. Oh, and I discovered I HATE blocking.  Oh well. A few more pictures are here  http://www.flickr.com/photos/cinimonstk/tags/clapotis/, and eventually I'll update my blog.  Finally, something is finito!

For some reason I am taking FOREVER on this project. When I do pick it up I could work on it for hours but it's hard to pick up to work on. Normally I pick up a smaller project...Oh well here we are so far...

Just to ask...

Did anyone else get sick of the Clapotis half way through?

I had to put her away for a couple of weeks and make some socks. It was all a bit much.

I've now done 10 of the 13 straight repeats and cannot wait to get it off the needles and away!

Here's a rather long ago progress pic...

She's made from a cone of heather coloured mystery wool from a charity shop...

And she'll be completed soon - mark my words!

Oh yeah- BIG time. It took all my willpower to finish it, because the stockinette was so mind numbing . And I made mine with bulky yarn and bigger needles, which made it an even longer project.  Tongue

How stupid that I made another Clap, this time a scarf, (forgetting how mind numbing it is) for my sis, and now I am about to make yet another full sized for myself, this time with worsted instead of bulky like my first one, which is too big to wear out of the house- Its perfect for cuddling up in it on the couch, when sick or cold or tired.

I am hopeless. I never learn. I am addicted!  Roll Eyes
