FO: Clapotis #2

21 Nov

Pattern: Clapotis by Kate Gilbert

Yarn: Karaoke by Southwest Trading Company, Mermaid Mix

Needles: US 8

Time to Completion: 1 year + 2 weeks.

Notes: I’m so glad to have this off my back!  I took about an eleven month break in the middle of knitting this, but ultimately I’m glad that it’s done!  Karaoke was nice to work with, but it does break easily – never while knitting with it, but often enough for me to be concerned about the yarn’s strength.  It also took forever to drop all those stitches – I finally finished them in about 3 hours last night.  I don’t know that I will be making another of these, but I’m very happy to have two, in very different color families, to rotate.  The color above is accurate but dark – we are in the part of the year with no sunlight, so I did my best!

    Oh gosh, I was never a fan of clapotis. I always thought that they looked horrid in the aesthetic sense. Yours has changed my mind completely. Kudos to you on an awesome project!
