A change in plans

clapotis 1

Well, I started the Clapotis out of silk this weekend and it just wasn't what I wanted. Colors don't show up here and it IS beautiful in real life, but it was coming out too heavy. I wanted it to be a light piece. I had a change of plans and switched yarn. I am now using Cashmere and Yak. No joke. This is a BEAUTIFUL lace weight yarn (that I doubled) and I am doing it on size 2 needles. You still can't see the beautiful colors but take my word for it. It is almost exactly the same colors I was using with the silk.

Damn! I wish you could really see what a beatiful color it is...
