This pattern is so much fun to knit. I finished the increase section and just got to drop my first stitch. How fun was that!!!!

How is everyone else doing???

I have dropped my 5th stitch. I am a bit disappointed that it is not wider.

You could half block it wider. Don't stretch it too much, but maybe block the width only.

This is so unfair! I finished my clapotis just a few weeks ago. I always wanted to participated in a KAL! Oh well, I posted a picture here.

Chel I think it looks really good!

Oh man, I'm glad I found this thread. I just started my first Clapotis last week.

I haven't taken pictures yet, but I'm within two rows of having all the increase section done.

I'm using this yarn.



It's called Waterlily and was made by a lady in Canada. Here is a link to her site. http://seejayneknit.blogspot.com/

I found her on Etsy and she did a custom dye job to get me enough yardage to do the Clapotis.

I'm so excited to find this KAL. I'll post pictures of what I've got so far tomorrow.

Sharon -

that yarn is gorgeous. I am so happy you found us too! I dropped my 5th stitch at lunch today and I love the way mine is turning out. I am using Lorna's Laces - Shephard Worsted in the same colorway as the original clapotis in Knitty. The pattern is so much fun to knit. I think I know what all my special friends are getting this year for the holidays. I just ordered some Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb in a colorway similar to the one you are using. I can't wait to see yours!

Lynn

It's not the greatest picture, but this is my Clapotis just as the increase rows finished. I love the way the colors are mixing on this and the yarn is the softest I've ever used.

I have managed to drop one stitch so far. That was so exciting. Can't wait for the next one, but I've got a lot of knitting to do to get there.

Of course, school started Wednesday and I haven't had a chance to pick it up since then, but I will definitely be working some rows this weekend.

I have a feeling going to class five nights a week is really going to slow this project down.
