Okay, I really can't wait

I will do it the simple way. Here is one picture of my finished Clapotis.

I have to weave in the ends. I really really really REALLY love this. It came out perfectly! It is really really really REALLY LONG too. I have a picture of it hanging on a door in my house and I can't seem to upload it. I will hope to have it figured out by tomorrow.

If you are going to make this using the yarn I did, which was South West Trading Company, 100% Soy Silk, Phoenix. Make sure, if you have a section of it where the fibers are "fraying" that you don't use that yarn and start it again at the end of the row. The yarn broke on me! I have to think of something to fix it, I hope I don't have to resort to glue. It is only in 2 spots. Grrrrr.....

hi. i hope this comment isn't too late for you to check it. i was looking for "soy silk clapotis" because i want to make mine with the soy silk, and I came upon yours. I wanted to know how many skeins of phoenix it took and what needle size you used. clapotis might be too advance for me right now but i am working up to it!

Hi! This is a LONG time after the fact but I adore the size of your Clapotis. I made one last fall, but it's small. In the pattern, the designer describes making a bigger one, but did you use an actual pattern (number of increase rows etc.), or did you make up the size as you went along? Did you use the same size needles as the pattern suggests? What sort of gage was the yarn? Thanks in advance for your time. It's really beautiful!
