Yarn on Thursday - Clapotis!

So, having finished a few things (more on that Friday), I'm back to Clapotis as my carry-around project.


I'm about halfway through Ball of Yarn #2 (of 3), and I need some motivation to keep going. I re-watched several Clapoitis-related episodes of Let's Knit2gether. Then, I went on a photo hunt, and thanks to the Trusty InterWebs, I found some amazing photos of the finished product. I decided to share, which took two seconds; putting this post together took a couple of hours, but I know y'all like looking at the pretties just like I do, so it's worth it. Click on a photo to go to the blog entry with that photo in it; click on the link below the photo to go to the current blog entries for that blog.

This is but a SMALL sampling of what I found in a two-word Google search - there are at least 35 PAGES full of finished Clapotis pictures (and some other cool things), and I found a bunch of great new-to-me knit+blogs to follow. Click through on the links above to examine them yourself - there's some really lovely work.

And, just because, one of the photos (and blogs) I discovered was this - I wish the full-size version was still available:


Let Them Knit Cake!!

  1. Thanks for the link! I remember when I was planning my clapotis, I spent days and days googling clapotises (clapotii?) and checking them all out and trying to decide on a yarn. I ended up going with Lorna's Laces (Lion & Lamb I think) in peacock. I had no regrets - it was gorgeous and soft and it has worn well over the past few years. I love - and use - my clapotis more than anything else I've ever knit. good luck with yours!
