What is a Clapotis you say? It's my latest knitting project! I really enjoyed this one. I found it on Knitty a long time ago & always wanted to try it. Just had to find some fun yarn & as you knitters know - sometimes it takes a few year for the combo to come together. Well, I found this yarn & wondered for the longest time what to do with it - BINGO - a match!

It is supposed to be fashioned from a French Scarf. Its really cool because it'll row up & you can wear it as a scarf around your neck - or it opens up to a really cool shawl.... (excuse the hair.. it had been a rough day at work... lots of fingers running through the hair day!!!)

Its really fun because you knit at an angle & drop a stitch every so often in a repeat & it just works out... like they say "trust the pattern"... I didn't trust it either. I thought for sure I was going to run out of yarn - found the yarn on line (because it had been so long since I originally bought it) & bought two more skeins.... well... yep, I had enough - so now, I have 2 and 1/2 skeins left over... so what to make with that yarn... hmmmm....
