Of course, this probably isn’t funny if you don’t know that the name of the James C. Brett colorway in the Marble yarn is called “Berries”. But now you do. And now you can laugh.
Since Mike’s Hat is done and I don’t have any knitting deadlines at the moment I snapped at the chance to work on Clapotis some more. I’m still not sure if it’s the pattern or the yarn, but I’m loving every minute of it. I’m using stitch markers instead of purling the sts to be dropped like some people do, ‘cus I like them. I will definately be buying more of this yarn in the future.
I’ve completed 4 full increase sections at this point. I’m going to do at least one more, then decide if I do the 2 others that the pattern calls for. Even though the yarn is supposed to be dk weight (there is no gauge given, it just says “knits to most dk patterns”) I’m getting 5st to the inch on 5mm needles, which to me suggests worsted weight. Right now the scarf would be 12″ wide. Each full increase section adds about 2.5″-3″ but I haven’t decided yet how wide I want this to be. I want it more as a scarf than a shawl, so I’d rather lose an increase section or two but add some straight sections to make it longer. I’ll check it out in another 12 rows and see.
