scarves

just part of the crowd

I present my clapotis, number 45,035,435,035…. and counting πŸ˜‰

Silk Clapotis

Project: Clapotis from Knitty.com
Yarn: Handmaiden Sea Silk, 1 ball
Needles: Size 3 circulars

Silk Clapotis

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 πŸ˜‰

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!

  1. If by any chance Brooks Farms is there and they are selling to retail, please try to talk Patricia into getting some of that. I always stock up at Rhinebeck but I would love to be able to get it locally.

  2. Hello! Columbus is really great, I have lived here for 8 years now! If you want suggestions of good places to go, lots of people left comments on Mary-Heather’s blog post on the front page of Ravelry (including me, mine is the longest, ha!). I hope you have a good time, if you want a drinking buddy, let me know! πŸ™‚

  3. GORGEOUSSSSS!!!
    I have two skeins of sea silk and haven’t done anything with them yet- waiting for the right project(s). I think I will definitely use one of the skeins for a clapotis scarf.
    Have fun at TNNA!
