Clapotis is done
I finished the Clapotis shawl in June, but took awhile getting around to taking pics. Anyway, here it is. It looks nice. I wore to my reunion and got many compliments. I am not terrifically happy with it. The main problem (and the one that can't be fixed) is that the chenille strand worms very badly.
Also, I miscalculated the yarn and came up short. Some fancy "arrangement" and a big pin took care of that. If I decide I really love it, I will try frogging--if the yarn can take it, I will re-knit the whole thing a little narrower to get the length.
This is a Drop Spindle hand dyed yarn. The pattern is on Knitty archives.
