This is the beautiful ArtYarns Regal Silk that I am using in an attempt to knit a clapotis as part of the Yarn Harlot’s Knitting Olympics. Are you an Olympian? I’m part of Team Clapotis.

Edited to add: I’ve created a simple button for any RevGal Olympic Knitters. It’s in the sidebar. Feel free to use it!

  1. I love my clapotis and what beee-YU-tiful yarn you’ve chosen. Have you joined the clapotis yahoo group? There are a couple of very helpful spreadsheets on there to keep track of the rows.
    Are we Team Clergy?

  2. I didn’t know there was a Yahoo group. Yay!
    Do you know how to make a button, Emily? Because I want us to have a team. Team Jesus? That’s probably too disrespectful. Team RevGal? Could we do that?

  3. I left her a comment earlier. I’m glad you like it! That’s an itty bit of the picture of my yarn in the corner.
    I managed to cast on and knit fourteen rows earlier, but with Pure Luck leaving so soon, I didn’t want to spend the whole evening knitting!!

  4. Now I have yet another piece of evidence that I am truly yarn-impaired. Filed under the category “there is no stupid question except the unasked one”:
    What’s a clapotis?

  5. Cheesehead, if it makes you feel any better, I’m making something I don’t know for sure how to pronounce. It’s a big scarf that you knit on the diagonal. It’s French, sort of. It involved unravelling stitches to get a ladder effect, a concept I find terrifying yet irresistible. You can see one here.
