Another Clapotis finished by the skin of my teeth!


I finished this last night and was so worried I wouldn't have enough, even though I used 400grams of Hipknits Aranweight silk. My Aunt had requested this as her Birthday present and I will be able to givie it to her this weekend. :)

I had only a tiny amount of yarn left, as you can see.

That's a real beauty, I love the colours in it. I think I had about the same amount of yarn left on mine, it's close to the wire!

It was very close to the wire. I've never been so close to not having enough yarn, it was really scary. Especial with handdyed yarn! :)

BTW Thanks for the compliments. :)

Oh that is so beautiful and I love the colour. There must be something in the air , or is yarn shrinking !!? I too have finished 'Melon'with JUST enough yarn pheww, as you say scary when you know you can't get any more .It's blocking at the moment , so hopefully will be able to photo it later

Yep - that's close! But it was all worth while. I've yet to knit clapotis but I can see why it's so popular.

Gil this is beautiful! I love the colour of the yarn. I've never been tempted to knit a Clapotis but yours might just change my mind...
