My Clapotis has a first name...

Just recently started the Clapotis scarf/shawl from the Knitty site.

I also joined the Yahoo! group for the Clapotis Knit Along. I just love seeing what everyone has come up with. This thing is addicting from what I've seen. It is an easy knit so far, but then again, I'm still on section 2 (increasing). I have been grabbing it whenever I can but I was knitting washcloths to add to my Bunco gifts. My game was last night and everyone got bath & body stuff. It has been so long since I've done a washcloth. I made the round petal design cloth. Very nice and impressive looking.

I have been using the very inexpensive Red Heart Supersaver in the Gemstone colorway (Teal, purple, magenta) for my Clapotis. I was going to order some sock yarn from,
but I was concerned that it was too light weight for this project. I saw some people using Caron and Red Heart because they didn't want to invest in the project and not like it afterwards. I just have to use up some of my stash. I didn't have enough for an afghan but I don't know how many skeins this project will take so I went out an bought another one. I'll post a picture of my progress soon.
