Dyed in the Wool
A dyed-in-the-wool knitter shares mainly fibre-related information, updates and musings (with the occasional moan about the weather!).

Thank CENSORED for that!

Click on any of the pictures for a larger view (if you dare!)

Pattern: Clapotis from knitty.com
Yarn: Louisa Harding Sari Ribbon (90% Nylon, 10% Metallic) in colour 5.
Yardage/meterage: 4 balls of above yarn (66 yds/60 m per ball) less 2.5 m!
Finished size: Approx. 1.25 m by 0.45 m/50" by 18"
Modifications: Yarn substitution and smaller size made
Comments: Still love this pattern! The yarn isn't necessarily something I would have chosen for myself, but I did enjoy working with it. It is scratchy (because of the metallic threads) but boy does it look pretty! For many, many more pictures (including the one my camera took when the tripod fell over!) go here.

  • Great idea! - having just cleaned John Lewis out of that ribbon in the sale, have been wondering what exactly to do with it ...

  • Congrats on finishing the paper! Awesome! You can enjoy your break now. Cup-o-tea or Clapotis looks fabulous. I love the ribbon nature of it. Color just stunning on you.
