Comments: It's contagious!

While everybody's clap is beautiful i think i will continue to resist the urge-untilthey make a clapotis sock that is

Woo hoo! Another clappy:) Yours looks perty - I'll need to fondle it in person this week!

P.S. Mine is sitting in my knitbag, begging to be worked - but I'm on a sock binge right now, so it'll have to wait:)

Actual disease or not, Clapotis is DEFINITELY contagious! You know that I resisted for a really long time, and yet I too have been infected. As long as you and I don't get into some sort of crazy Clapotis-race, we'll be fine, I think (we're at just about the same place in the pattern, I suspect).

To figure out if you have enough yarn, weight to total amount of yarn and then weigh the portion up to where you start the straight section (it looks like you are almost there). Multiply by two (for increase section and decrease section) and then subtract that weight from your total weight. Whatever you have left is how far you can go on your straight section.

I knew in advance that I didn't have enough yarn to complete the pattern as read so I did one less increase section (and, subsequently one less decrease section).

Sorry to hear that you caught the Clap. (har har)

Seriously, I am thinking about making one myself.

I thought I'd make it without catching the 'clap'. Well, I was stash diving the other night and think I found the perfect yarn for one. Now I guess I have to have one too.

Oh, forgot, LUV all your beads and markers! May have to make a pitstop by that bead store today!

I love your yarn. I also admire you for getting it out of the stash! Good girl!

I'm working on my second one - worsted weight yarn from Caron Rainbow Dreams on 10.5 needles. The first one with the same yarn in a different colorway on size 8 needles came out to gauge, but feels stiff by comparison, so once #2 in Rosy Forecast is complete, I'm planning on frogging #1 in Jetstream and reknitting it. My hair-elastic stitch markers look so mundane compared to all the fancy ones I'm seeing. Guess I'll have to pick up a new craft. {g}

Does anyone know where I can find a comparison chart as far as size of yarn.....i.e: fingering, baby, sports, 4 Ply, etc

I'm trying to make some outfits from Barbie books that I bought 20 years ago and I've never heard of some of the brands and was wondering if there is such a chart.

Any help in this matter will be GREATLY appreciated....as I'm doing the outfits again for my 3 year old granddaughter.
