The Maiko Clapotis has finished blocking:
Getting the big fella to share the same vision of an “F.O. photo” is a challenging proposition …
I have to coax him to come closer, to not get the entire neighbourhood in the background … and even so I had to crop these pics down.
So I’m quite pleased with how the Maiko knit up and blocked out. It’s very soft and drapey. I would use it again.
I dug around in my most recently acquired yarn and pulled out three skeins of Noro Silk Garden Chunky and started a capelet ( Rav link ) or on the designer’s blog. I’m doing a few mods (quelle surprise!) in that I’m using a different needle size, stitch count, decrease method and I’m not making it reversible. I thought the gorgeous Noro colours would look best in stocking stitch.
