Clapotis in aran silk

Pictures of the completed Clapotis, knitted in Hipknits aran silk (400g):





(click on the images for larger versions - the smaller pictures don't do the colours justice)

The silk was custom-dyed as an intended copy of "Peony" (seen on annarella's blog), it came out lighter and I named it "Love Hearts" instead. It's so pretty and summery and is lovely to look at on these darker winter days. The silk was nice to knit with, as I mentioned already I wasn't sure if I'd have enough with 400g but I finished with a little yarn to spare. This is a full-size Clapotis as per the pattern. It was also quite a fast knit, I did get a lot of it done while I was on holiday over Christmas though. I also used my Knitz and Glitz Clapotis stitchmarker set which was just the ticket!

That is really quite breathtaking. I love the sheen on the yarn - it really makes the colours shine out. And your knitting is so neat, as well.

My gosh, this is so absolutely beautiful! The colours are a real dream, so delicious and certainly perfect to cheer up these grey winter's days (though we're having something like spring here, no greyness at all ;)
Fantastic work, my friend, congratulations!

What a stunning colour. Everytime I see this knitted up I want one more, but yours is especially gorgeous.

Love hearts is just right as a name. Your last clapper looked like a rose garden, this one reminds me of a sweet shop. It's stunning and the sheen on the yarn makes it really elegant.
