Bet I'm not the first to type that title with great enthusiasm for both the meaning and the rhyme.
Stayed up way too late. The kind of late where my eyes were no longer focusing and I was literally nodding off. I was knitting on faith that at that point my hands knew what to do. Luckily, as those who've finished have said, it sails along at the end. That's what kept me going - all those markers landing in my lap and all those ladders going zip (more of a gentle pop really).
No one's here to take photos, so I've taken these with a tripod. Will get better shots with Brian's help this weekend, but until then these will have to do. Clapotis certainly inspires one to toss it about and pose. I've seen this on other blogs and now I really understand. You feel dramatic, classy, pretty, sexy, chic -- basically oh-so-French. If you're thinking of making one go for it. And I can promise it will fit!
This is Artyarns Supermerino, which specifies US #7, 18/4" on the label. I used US #8 without taking gauge. This is the same yarn Froggy used for her Clapotis in a different colorway, so I made it on faith (click that link to see hers in several chic poses). I send a big thanks to you Froggy because Clapotis was just another random project on the maybe list until I saw yours and then I just had to make one immediately.
I want to make another after I've had time to forget how it dragged in the end, though I suspect the fun of wearing it will far outweigh that inconvenience. Plan to use a light colored merino/silk or merino/cotton blend. The bounce of the merino seems very suitable, but I want a warm weather fiber blended for spring and summer. The openness of the pattern will look perfect with a summer dress.
