FO: Clapotis


Pattern: Clapotis

Yarn: drafted unspun silk Mawatas hand-dyed by Sunnyside Ellen

Modifications: none

Comments: It's done and it's lovely. Truth be told it's still a bit damp from blocking but Linda doesn't seem to mind ... especially as she gets to keep it. Now that all the dropped stitches are dropped all the way down, the drape is really gorgeous.

It was fun and interesting to draft the mawatas and knit the silk when I started out, but the novelty wore off pretty quickly. I'm glad I did it, but once was enough. If you're interested I have about a dozen leftover mawatas - I can mail you a couple to play with if you PM me (lynnw63) on Ravelry with your address.

It's just as stunning as I thought it would be. Linda is one lucky lady!

Linda looks lovely in her new Clapotis. Congrats on making it through the "sticky" parts.

Looks great - I'm tempted to claim a few of the mawatas because the colour is so pretty... but I still have a stack of my own!

It's quite lovely but I think you're right about not wanting to do all that drafting again. Not that it wasn't a good learning experience, mind...just that you've done it and you don't have a desire to do it again (yet).
