From the moment I started listening to knitting podcasts I kept hearing about the Clapotis shawl. I finally sat down and looked at the pattern from (, and decided I have got to make one of for myself. This is one of the most beautiful shawls I have ever seen. And it even seemed possible for a beginning knitter like myself. As I'm not a big fan of verigated yarns so I decided on a solid purple (of course).

Here is what I have so far:

I hope I'm doing this right. So far so good. At least as far as my un-trained eye can tell.

I didn't realize, at first, that you needed so many stitch markers (18). And of course I only had the five I got free with a magazine. So, as is usually the case with me, I ran out right after work and purchased beads, wire and rings to make my own. They took about an hour to make. And considering I have no idea what I'm doing, I think I did a pretty good job.
