Clapotis : Take 2

Pattern: Clapotis from Knitty
Materials: Handpainted Merino from Uruguay, 3.5 balls (supposedly 218 yds per skein. I still feel I was shorted), Sz 7 circular needles (Gotta love Denise Interchangeables)
Notes: Soft, warm and non-itchy. Forgot how many repeats I did on this one, just kept knitting until I felt it was the right length.
Update: Thank you all for your lovely compliments! I've received a few questions in regards to where I purchased my yarn. It's from an ebay seller under the name 100purewool. Just make sure you got more yarn than what you THINK you actually need. And while you're at it, if you have a yarn meter, please check whether or not they really come in 218 yd hanks. Don't want you to run into yarn shortage problems like I did.

I love it! I got some of that handspun nonmerino from Uruguay and I was definitely shorted too.
