Well, I am in the home stretch with my clapotis scarf. I didn't have enough of the yarn that I wanted to use (an alpaca/wool blend in a fall colorway from Over the Rainbow Yarns, an eBay seller). So, I only have 10 repeats (does that make it a clapotini?), and it is still plenty wide. What I am a little piqued about is the difference of color in the 2 skeins of yarn. It was not apparent in the skeins, or when it was balled up. However, once knitted, there is a significant color change. I am knitting on, hoping to finish this week. I have 4 more repeats to do, and then I can start the decreases (the beginning of the end). It's almost 6 feet long, and I like that.
