I've finished knitting the Clapotis.
I just love it. It was a nice simple project with just enough interest to not cause me to go brain dead. I can see now why this has been such a popular pattern. I especially enjoyed using this fabulous yarn. It is maybe the nicest yarn that I have ever worked with. It is insanely soft and the color saturation is outstanding.
Some Clapotis beauty shots for you..

I love the dropped stitches!
It adds so much drape and texture. It produces an airy lighter fabric that makes it that perfect wrap for spring and fall when it is a bit chilly out but not freezing. At least in the area that I live anyways.The other great thing about Clapotis is that it can be worn in many different ways. It can be worn as a chunky scarf around your neck...
Or it can be a shawl-like wrap around your shoulders.
It even looks great with the wrong-side showing!
Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb and size 9 needles for this project. As I had previously mentioned, this yarn is decadent. I have however seen the Clapotis made up in other beautiful not quite as err.. expensive yarns. Noro Silk Garden looks great in the project. Really any yarn that self-stripes or is variegated is really shown off by this pattern.
But as for me... I am planning on enjoying my super decadent Clapotis.
