Doesn't Bob look elegant in my new clapotis? This is five balls of a blue-faced Leicester wool, worsted weight, 132 yards each. The yarn is very soft, similar to a merino. It was also sold at a discount (from Paradise Fibers), so the whole thing only cost $20. I made no changes to the pattern. In fact, I love the pattern. It's simple, but very clever and easy to remember.
I'll be making more of these (I'm already planning one in Blue Sky Organic Cotton).
