Clapotis with beaded silk

April 30, 2007

Clapotis was my dream project! I finally started this, because I found a very very great yarn for this scarf.

It’s Artyarn – Beaded silk, it’s new this Spring.

When I first knew this yarn from the net, I couldn’t find any internet store or local sell this.
After two months, I went back on searching again ,and accidentally found one store with this yarn on sale!

What a great price with this beaded yarn: only $19.95 each?! I can’t believe it!

They said that they were overstock with this yarn, so, they put them on sale.
(but at time, there weren’t much left in stock already!)
I chose this color because it looks icy, and cool. (and it has 4 in stock, which is enough to make a scarf, for other colors, there were only 2-3 skeins left. )

I bought 4 of them, and their service was fast too!
After I received them, I didn’t want to stop looking and touching them, it’s so silky and cool with beads!

So, right after I finished the Chinese top, I started this Clapotis, and at the same time, I enjoy the touch of the beaded silk and doing the drop stitches progress. There are so much fun!!!

Some people might wonder where to buy this yarn? I checked with the search engine, and really find hard to find some cheap ones, they all sell the yarn at least $34.00 USD!
The site that I had this sale is called “Sarah’s Yarn”

They do have some nice yarns, but no more artyarn beaded silk. (I wished they would carry more!)

If you don’t mind the high price of this yarn, you can go to the following links for purchasing this gorgeous yarn:

It’s going to be the most beautiful Clapotis, so it was worth waiting for the best yarn to fit the pattern.
