J is for Jewel
This might be stretching it, but this yarn, knit up, is the most beautiful Jewel I've ever seen. And a heckuva lot softer too. Amy was right. Blue Heron Rayon Metallic DOES make a beautiful Clapotis. Not that I doubted her, but when Amy Singer comes to your blog and makes a comment that the yarn you just showed the world yarnography of, makes a beautiful Clapotis, you make a beautiful Clapotis with it. So here it is. Artsy shot: And here's what's left. Talk about cutting it close. That is 12.5 inches left. I was sweating it near the end. But I had to have enough. I just had to! I mean, I got out the scales for this project! After the second section, I weighed my yarn ball, and made a note to leave at least that much, plus some leeway, before I started the decrease section. I managed to do, oh, 10 repeats of the straight rows rather than 12, but it's still a good length. I was worried about that too. But I'm so, so happy with the results. Thank you, Amy!
