After dinner Koko came over and the 3 of us watched Waiting. I love Ryan Renolds. Funny movie. Don’t watch it if you ever want to eat in a restaurant again. I needed something to knit during the movie and wanted to pay attention to the Clapotis pattern but the movie actually makes you watch more often than not, so I made up a little swatch. It’s dk weight yarn and I didn’t measure it yet, so I’m not sure if I get the 19st/25row gauge the pattern calls for, but you know what? It’s a scarf. I’m not worried. If you look closely you can see how the bottom is plied with paler colors, and it gets more red in the middle, and as it gets towards the top it starts being plied with some purple. I can’t wait to see the shots of blue and green pop in. I really, really love this colorway. There is a sheen to the yarn that is probably ‘cus it’s acrylic but I swear if I look really close at it I think it’s silk. I think I’m really going to enjoy knitting this. I hope it doesn’t stick for the dropped stitches.

  2. Hi there,
    Hope you see my post on the Clapotis group about the Marble one I finished recently. The striping came out GORGEOUS!
    Feel free to contact me for any questions on using this yarn. BTW, the one that you have is the “Berries” colorway. I had insisted to the owner of the LYS I was working at that the color would sell like hotcakes. She did not believe me, until it did! 🙂
