Here's the deal - this is a knitalong* for the Clapotis from Knitty.com, designed by Kate Gilbert. I don't have any pics to show yet, but here's what you'll need:

  • Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb [50% silk, 50% wool; 205yd/184m per 100g skein]; 4 skeins
  • 1 set US #8/5mm straight needles, 18 stitch markers, tapestry needle
or yarn to obtain GAUGE, 19 sts/25 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch

I'm using Debbie Bliss Pure Silk in orange.

If you would like to join in, please email me - boutique {at} flibbertgibbet {dot} co {dot} uk and I'll whizz you over an invite! Then post on here to introduce yourself.

I have to say that my goal is to get a couple of these knitted for Christmas - yes, I'm starting early...do join me.

Width: 21 inches, Length: 55 inches

* knitalong - where a number of knitters work on their own version of a project at the same time, in their own choice of materials. I'm setting this up because of pestering from some of my knitting group, hah, plus although the new ravelry site allegedly allows you to do knitalongs, it seems to be taking months to get on to it and I'm not sure that I can allow yet another internet obsession into my life...

This is great. Count me in. I have been waiting a long time to knit the clap. I am planning on starting the clap on Saturday, August 4th (which is when Dad leaves London and I am once again free to knit). I plan to knit the clap with 300 grams of hand-dyed worsted merino. I'm looking forward to it.
