...I've been meaning to make one, too. And why not? I like wearing "decorative" scarves (you know, silk scarves and such worn as accessories), I like wearing my hand-knits, and I absolutely adore the shiny, luscious, soft, soft, soft Alchemy Synchronicity wool-silk blend that I discovered at Knit Purl.
Only, with just two skeins I have something over 200 yards, not enough for a full-sized Clapotis. It will have to be scarf-sized, long and narrow, so it will take a little experimenting to figure out when to finish the increases and later, when to begin the decreases.
I wanted a relatively simple project for under-desk knitting, and I need something I can take to graduation to work on during the interminable speeches. Not that I'm required to attend the graduation ceremonies, but when else do I get to parade around in the Doctoral robe and hood that I worked so hard to earn?
ETA: Just to clarify, I'm not among the graduates this year. That was actually 2007. Now I get to march with the faculty. Nevertheless it's still a kick every time I get to call myself "Doctor." There is great truth in this graph:
