Finally through with the clap —

—otis, that is. I didn't have gonorrhea. Nor was I involved in the Child Labour Action Programme. (I do love Wikipedia...)
I couldn't get a great shot this morning — kind of damp outside, limiting where I could, with abandon, toss the Clapotis. Here is a kind of goofy shot of it on me:

Stats: Clapotis from Knitty, US #8 Boye circs (ugh), Sundara DK Silky Merino in "Caterpillar", 3 skeins (using almost all of them). No modifications. 65" x 21" before blocking. More pics after blocking — I think it will grow a lot.

Check out these bumpin' stitch markers! These were the generous gift of one of the other knitters involved with Knit for the Kidlets, to whom I sent some crocheted hats. I don't feel I deserved them, but I certainly will enjoy them!

So glad you're done with the Clap! It's the prettiest case of Clap I've ever seen (not that I've actually seen any cases of the clap).

Love the stitch markers.

What a beautiful green clapotis. And I absolutely lust after the stitch markers. So bright! The magpie in me goes Caw! Caw!

Your Clap is gorgeous! And the stitchmarkers ain't bad either.

Man the clap looks good! I'm planning on doing that pattern sometime in the future, I'm not sure exactly when.

I love the stitch markers, and now I know what I'm going to make my friend for her birthday. I'd make you some too, but you have some beautiful ones already.
