Isn't that better?


I decided I needed to try something different with my Clapotis. Here it is, (on the left) alternating two rows with each skein. Doesn't this look better? I was worried about the yarn carried up on side, but this yarn is so soft and drapey, it blends right in. I also took the opportunity to shore up my gauge a little, and dropped a needle size (now using US 6). I also dropped stitch markers in favor of purling the stitches that will later be dropped.

  2. Random blogger popping in! I really love the alternating rows with each skein, and I think that the beads will look lovely scattered throughout the shawl.
