I Caught the Clapotis Bug

I really like the pattern (it's free from Knitty) and the yarn I'm using has been really great to knit with...but the name...Clapotis...it sounds like a very unpleasant disease.

I started my Clapotis while on vacation in Hawaii. I had already wound a couple of hanks of the Artyarns Supermerino yarn and had it, the pattern, and the right size needles, just sitting in a bag. So when it was time to run out the door to the airport it was an easy project to grab and go.

It's worked from corner to corner, with kfb increases (knit in the front and then into the back of the same stitch) on the end of each row. I'm almost at the point where I'll drop the stitches at each marker, which is where it will start to look more like the photo on Knitty).

Clapotis in Artyarns Supermerino - almost at the end of Section 2 of the pattern.

I'm a bit bummed about the pooling of the yarn in places, but not enough to do anything about it (like working from two hanks of yarn at the same time). I just have to think of it as an organic piece that will tell me what it's going to look like.

I think I can do that. Maybe.
