I was bit by the Clapotis bug and here was the result. I chose Noro Silk Garden #201. 6 skeins. #8 circular needles. I decided to sew it together to make it a poncho instead of a shawl. These were all made Spring 2005.
Great knitalong group here with lots of info on substituting different yarns.
Then the girls all wanted one! Purple is a favorite around here so here's a skinny one in Simply Soft. This one is a scarf size.
The next one was done with Knit Picks Andean Silk - Bluebell. It's oh so soft!
The next two are Knit Picks dye your own Wool of the Andes. The purple-red-blue one was done with kool-aid. The green-blue-purple was done with Wilton cake decorating dyes. Looks better on my dd but she wasn't willing to model that day.
Even Grandma got in on the act. Here's one of her's. I sold her on Noro Silk Garden #34 (love purple and green together) but after it was made she fell in love with a different color...similar to mine at the top but lighter (not pictured).
