I'm in! I just ordered some Mmmmmm today which I finally managed to find here in Germany. My plan is to knit my mom a clapotis for Christmas, but I might as well get started now.

So as soon as my yarn is here I'll be joining in!

If you want to see what I ordered I posted it at the top of my blog (url in my signature). I can't wait to get my order!!

I made mine using a a ribbon yarn Giotto in colorway Raphael. I absolutely love it! Thankfully I go the yarn on sale. I modified mine so it wouldn't be so wide. It was super easy to do.
Mintdee I never thought of purling the drop rows what a brilliant idea.

Here is a close up picture of mine

I think I might join in. I was wondering though, it's all in stockinette stitch, will dropping the stitches help it not to curl so much?

I got to the 2nd dropped stitch tonight. Thats my goal, to make it through the pattern to the dropped stitch (my reward) every evening. Not bad considering I work 2 jobs.

Here are pics:

Yes. Though curling is part of the design, the dropped stitches and being knit on the bias keep it from curling as much as regular stockinette.

I definately want to make this. I'm thinking for my grams for her birthday.

Not sure if I want to do Ribbon yarn or Mmmmmmmmm.....

Will have to decide soon. I just need to finish my right hand of Fetching, then I am in.
