Clapotis

I finished my Clapotis! I used laceweight instead of the thicker yarn the pattern called for so I did a ton more repeats than the pattern called for. I'm not exactly sure how many more, but I ended up using 24 stitch markers (that'll make sense to anyone who's actually knit the pattern) It's a fun pattern and I'm sure I'll knit it again at some point. I love how easy it is to modify it for different sizes/yarns!

I wasn't paying the best attention to where the halfway point was so I ended up needing to use just a tiny bit of a third skein. Like maybe 50 yards tops of that third skein. But I knew I had that third skein as backup so I wasn't too concerned about running out! I did make an attempt at blocking it since I didn't like the ways the corners were curling, and I like it better blocked! Finding a place long enough to pin it out was a challenge though!
