I finished my first Clapotis

Wow! Took forever but it's done. I love this scarf / shawl thingy! I used Knitpicks Shimmer in Morning Mist color (double strand). This yarn is wonderful. It's alpaca (what IS an alpaca anyway??) and silk and is soooooo soft. I really like the drape for a spring/summer wrap. I hope to make more of these. I love how it can be worn as a shawl/wrap or as a scarf. Tres chic!!

If I didn't live in a subdivision, I'd be tempted {g}

How many skeins did it take?

I used less than 4 skeins. You could probably get away with 3 if you wound one of them into two skeins.
