First Clapotis!

Finished this fairly quick knit. I used Rowan Natural Silk Aran which I bought for more than half price at John Lewis last summer - but I only bought 12 balls which wasn't really enough for a cardi, and I was having trouble with gauge and worrying about how this would stretch - so decided to use it for a clapotis - the amazing viral knit! It is very large - at the minute about 28" by 80" and that's not blocked - so the yarn does stretch like billyo and also sheds loads of bits all over the place. I'm hoping that will stop! Lovely colour and feel though so I'm hoping this becomes a much used summer wrap. And I feel great for having used up some stash!
