I present my clapotis, number 45,035,435,035…. and counting ;-)
Project: Clapotis from Knitty.com
Yarn: Handmaiden Sea Silk, 1 ball
Needles: Size 3 circulars
Modifications: I decided to go with a scarf size instead of the full on shawl mostly due to the fact that I only had one skein of this gorgeous seasilk yarn. I did the set-up rows as written and did about 6 repeats of the increase rows.
Then I played the game of how many rows should I do before I start decreasing without measuring! I scientifically kept juggling the ball of yarn in one hand and the scarf in the other trying to determine how much was left. In the end I had a little ball left over which could have been used for a couple of more repeats… but I am not upset, this scarf is GORGEOUS! It’s got the most beautiful sheen and drape. A perfect accessory to dress up any outfit!
I am almost as excited about this little scarf as I am about going to the TNNA in Ohio this weekend!! I am working alongside of Patricia of Patricia’s Yarns taking classes and adding my .0002 cents on what she should consider picking up for the fall. I am very much looking forward to meeting some other bloggers and designers I admire! I hope to be chock full of great knitty knowledge come Monday ;-)
Otherwise, things in Chez Tentenknits are good! I went to my college reunion last weekend and enjoyed seeing some old familiar faces while pretending to be in college one more time. I have a feeling that this weekend in OH will rival the "college" weekend… Knit Keg Stands anyone?? I kid. I kid!
