Clapotis no. 2 - Finished At Last





Well, it has only taken me six months, but here is my Soysilk Clapotis finished at last! I am rather pleased with it. The fabric is very soft and drapey and no, I haven't blocked it, I don't think it needs it.

Now I can get on with Charlotte's Web! While I was taking photos, here is a picture of the semi solid pink laceweight I am intending to knit the Hanami stole in. What do you think?



The top edge of the stole is beaded, and the designer suggests clear beads with a silver insert, as they will look like raindrops. That sounds good to me, but I also wonder if a clear pink with silver inserts might not be nice.

While browsing the internet this afternoon I seem to have bought two new books as well; Yarnplay and More Sensational Knitted Socks. The Devil finds shopping for idle hands, it appears. Thank goodness I will be gardening tomorrow!

Nice clapotis! I haven't done one of those yet but I'm sure I will, they always look so versatile. And I hope the More Sensational Socks book is good, I've been ogling it more than a little...

Your clapotis looks good in all the ways you're wearing it and I love the colour.
The Hanami stole will look lovely in the pink yarn. The pattern looks as if it needs concentration!
