Clapotis - C'est Finis!

I think The Meezer thinks I'm nuts...

What IS this, Mommie?

Well, she is my Fleece Artist Sea Wool Clapotis!

Specs: fingering weight wool/sea silk blend in what I believe is the colorway "Jester" (FA doesn't put colorways on the band, but this is the closest I can come from her website.
Needles: began with Addi Lace needles size 4, switched to Addi Naturas in size 4 at the end, and wish I'd had them all the way thru the knit - this yarn is sooo soft - the Lace needles were fine, but the bamboo gave me a bit more control...

Started in July 2007 and finished last night! FAST knit.
Modifications? Well, I did add one repeat to the straight section. I wish I'd added at least 6 more (according to the marker I used, one repeat in this yarn was about 2 inches long). The finished scarf right now is 53 inches - a nice length for around my neck, and I was able to sit with it skirting my shoulders last night at the computer, but I don't think it's quite long enough for a wrap, I really could have made it longer...

I mean, after all, I have some yarn left...

(standard portable phone added for scale)

I'll weigh this when I get to work tomorrow, but I suspect there's about 2/3 of the skein left! Now...shall I make Mrs. Beeton's or maybe one of Anne's fingerless mitts with the leftovers?

And would I make this again? OH YEAH...Such a wonderful, fun knit (and I've got some yarn all set for it! *wink*)

I never made a clapotis but is there anyway to undo the bind off and add more length?

It's lovely and the colors look just perfect for your coloring! :)

It looks soft even in the photo. How many yards in a skein of Fleece Artist Sea Wool? I'm thinking of the 9 colors of Palette I have sitting here in beautiful heathers.

How lovely and that really was a fast knit! It seems like it just flew off your needles. I can't get over how much yarn you have leftover. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Beautiful clap! I'm doing one right now in Evita Zitron and I'm glad you added the comment about doing more straight rows...I just finished the first 13 repeats of the straight section and was debating whether or not it was a bad plan to do another complete set because I thought the length wasn't proportionate to the width in this particular yarn...but I'm definitely going to keep going!

Cheers!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
