Clapotis is FINISHED!

I finished something!! The Neverending Clapotis is ended!!

It's three skeins of Blue Ridge Yarns Kaleidoscope Superwash Sock Yarn, 2 in Ocean Coral (at either end) and 1 in Dragon's Breath, all purchased at Nature's Yarns, Inc. in Fairfax, Virginia. Yes, that's 1,200 yards of sock yarn - which makes for a shawl that's just under THREE METERS long.

Here, you can see the middle color better:

This is how much yarn I have left:

Given this started as three 400yd balls of sock yarn, I think I managed to figure out where to start my decreases at JUST the right spot!!

And, just to share, thought I'd found a wonderful birthday cake at Giant, covered in little balls of yarn!!

Turns out, though, that they're balloons, and I was just looking at the cake upside-down. Sigh.


  1. You cut that fine! It looks lovely and you did well to persevere, well worth it

  2. Molto bella! And allow me to say...yay Fairfax! I grew to age six in Fairfax, back when there was still a duckpin bowling alley near the courthouse...and ruined at least one white shirt with mulberries at Truro Episcopal. long did your Clapotis take from start to finish?

  3. Very pretty! A Clap in sock yarn, my hat's off to you.

  4. Max, according to Ravelry (without which I never actually remembered these things before), it took me from May 12, 2009 to January 16, 2010, or a grand total of 116 days. (No, I didn't count, I have a website - - that does it for me!)

  5. Very pretty ... but how do you wear a 3 metre long Clapotis???
