Color Me Happy

I've finished the Clappy.

Ok, I still have to drop the stitches and decide if I want to block it or not. But I do not need to knit another stitch, so I'm considering it done.

I love the clapotis, it's a great scarf for so many types of yarn. But oh the getting there. In this case I think I could have used a bigger needle and sped things along. I knit a ridiculous number of straight sections to get enough length. I blame it all on the needle size. I'll know for the future.As the piece is blocked here it's 19" wide x 59" long. I'm not really "blocking" it. I was hoping pulling it taut would encourage the dropped stitches to run. Didn't work.
