Clapotis

This is the second lot of silk dying I did, about a week ago now. I’ve been too busy knitting it up into a scarf for my cousin Sophie’s 21st birthday to post anything, and I haven’t even got any snaps in progress!

This yarn is so delicious I could eat it.

Silk singles:

Plied with merino singles (white dyed with green food colouring):

Beautiful thick/thin slubby yarn ranging from green to green-blue. I am slightly concerned that most of the blue and some of the green washed out when I blocked this, but it came from the silk- I think I was too impatient with it in the electric frypan.

The much loved and easily recognisable Clapotis, modified with only one repeat of the increase rows.

On the blocking mattress:

    Beautiful! I don’t think I’ve ever seen clapotis look so magnificent… I love green… I love silk… I love that you spun the yarn.

    Absolutely stunning. This is one skill on my 5-year-plan list. Also saw your socks of assassination from Sock Wars. Dreamy. Such a perfect green these all are!!

    You could make the Lucinda Guy birdie and offer it as a swap. Wonder what I might make that would interest you… 🙂
