I'd been avoiding it...

...but I finally have the Clap after all these years.

Guarding Clapotis

Yarn: Brooks Farm Duet (Good eye, Janna!), purchased from their booth at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. 55% kid mohair/45% fine wool
Pattern: Clapotis
Needles: US8s, bamboo
Recipient: Me, Myself, and I!
Mods: There was a little less yardage than the pattern called for so I made it one repeat less wide and one repeat shorter.
Thoughts: The yarn is different, but the color is scarily similar to what Steph chose.

I looooooooove it! So does Barley:

Like Chris, I've been saving a skein of Duet for my next Clap, so it's good to know what mods are necessary - and that it turns out so beautifully! Don't you love that yarn?

That colourway IS similar to Steph's. LOVE IT. Barley looks great in pink, what a sweetie (Sophie is in the exact same pose right now, but on the other side).

The other scarf looks awesome too - reminds me of trekking sock yarn for some reason.

YAY FOs!

Heh. That's a great dose of the Clap you've got there! it's beautiful. and you're right - very similar colour.

(I'm so behind the times - a week away from the computer will do that to you!)
