FO Clapotis

clapotis Close up
Yarn: Blue Heron Egyptian Mercerized Cotton in the colorway Summer Meadow (less then a whole hank, maybe used about 2/3 or so...)
Needles: Knitpicks Options in Size US5
Ravelry Link
Time Frame: Started this August 2007 finished January 2008 (This was the project that I picked up in between other projects).
Modifications: Knit on smaller needles to fit the smaller yarn. I added in a couple of extra repeats of the straight sections. I think I should have added 2 or 3 more as it's a bit short for me. This yarn is probably (ok definitely!) the nicest yarn I have ever used! The colors in it are just amazing. They are deep greens and vibrant greens mixed with royal purples and bits of ocean blue (best represented in the first photograph). The yarn is very soft and has a lovely shimmer. The colors on this are going to go amazingly with my nice "dress up" purple coat. I even have a green dress that this clapotis might match with if I use it as a wrap.
