So I have been working on a clapotis for the last few days. I'm using a lighter weight yarn (Lanas Puras Melosa fingering weight) than is called for and US 3 needles, so it's going to be a bit smaller. The yarn is a lovely, soft handpainted merino that ripples from sky blue to cloudy silver to earthy browns and olive green -- and, unfortunately, my photos don't really do it much justice.
The colorway is called "Mountain sky." I love it! Here it is wound into a ball (can you tell I'm enamored with it?).
I am in the middle of the third repeat of the straight rows section of the pattern. The color patterning has produced a variety of neat pooling effects, which you can see here:
At this point it probably seems like everything I make is from Knitty. To alleviate that impression, I'll be blogging about some of my "pre-blog" finished objects soon, so keep an eye out for them. In the meantime, I'll leave you with another photo of my clapotis:
