:woohoo:

Clapotis was done in a wool/silk blend I had custom dyed by an Ebay seller. If you want the name, I can try to find it again. Great stuff and a lovely lady!

Candle Flame Shawl - Lamb's Pride Bulky in Wild Violet, a 1lb cone bought from Oregon Trail Ebay store - note to others, a 1lb cone is not enough unless you want a petite one! I had to curtail mine and forego the collar the pattern calls for. It works and it's beautiful and warm though. Grandma won't mind! BTW: it's not crooked, I just laid it that way - I was in a rush taking the pics!

The clapotis is really gorgeous! I have yarn to make not one, but two and can't seem to get started on it! How long did it take you to knit the clap? Hee, it's just fun to type that :teehee:

The Candle Flame shawl looks warm and cozy and decadent! Really beautiful work!!!

The clap - when you start out, it's a big boring triangle. Once you get to dropping stitches, it flies. You start zipping through to get to another drop stitch row!

Both pieces have an easy to remember stitch pattern, and once you get going they both go pretty quickly. :thumbsup:

Thanks for all the compliments! :muah:

I'm with Dagny on the candle flame pattern. You can actually see the flame! I love that.

I think I'm really going to have to see a specimen of "Clapotis" in person. So far, just from looking at pictures, I don't really understand what all the fuss is about. Yours is lovely, there is no doubt, but I suspect there must be some special effect of the stitch that doesn't come across in photos.

I am kind of wondering about the 'clap' myself, but your work is beautiful! Love the colourways!

And the candle flame... yum! I think I'll have time sometime next year! Very inspiring and beautiful!

The candle flame shawl is absolutely stunning! I saw a similar pattern online, but it doesn't mention overall dimensions and how much yarn. Can you please tell me how much yarn you used, and also if the pattern is one you can share?

Thanks!

Here's the knit-along (KAL) thread - fantastic resource of info on it! :thumbsup: We shared the different yarns we used, problems we encountered, etc. The pattern is linked there and so are some corrections - make sure you get those!

The overall dimensions are about as big as you'd like to make it. I finished out on 60" circs, but would have gone bigger if I had more yarn. Enjoy! I think I want to make another one. :teehee:
