Clapotis Progress

Beginning the fourth repeat of section 3. At this point it feels like this pattern will never end! Looking forward to each 8th row to break it up a little with the dropped stitch. Also looking forward to beginning the decrease rows. I'm using silk garden, and I'm a little disappointed in the color. I think my aunt will like it, she loves really vibrant colors, but I feel the pale brown and the bubblegum pink are a little out of sync with the rest of the colors in the yarn.

The silk garden also needs a lot of help in unraveling, but so far, so good.

Here are loads more photos- just click on a photo to see a larger image.

I totally know what you mean about it feeling never-ending!! I'm at about the same spot you're at and I keep putting it off to the side in impatience.

It really is killing me! I am SO ready to be finished with this pattern!
Really unsure about the colorway, but hopefully my aunt will be happy with it!!

Your Clapotis looks so good! I've got to agree about Silk Garden--it's definitely tough to drop those stitches, and their colorways are kind of odd at times. But yours is still beautiful! =)

I am also in boring knitting land. Sigh. Boring socks, boring blanket.

Nell, I'm glad you like the colors- that's a relief, as I'm still not totally convinced!

Lanea, I'm now on the 6th repeat... slow going!!
