Beware the Clap

No, not really. Honestly, the Clapotis deserves a little more respect than that. I finished mine last night, so here are some photos and stats.

Yarn: Knitpicks Sock Garden in Hydrangea, not quite three balls.
Needles: US #3.
Time to complete: about a week and a half.
And what the heck is a clapotis?: Clapotis, n. m. invar., syn. clapotement, n. m. Bruit et mouvement de l'eau qui clapote. (And what the heck does clapote mean?) Clapoter, v. intr. Etre agité de petites vagues qui font un bruit caractéristique en s'entrechoquant. And for those of you that can't get through that mess of French, basically, it means 'lapping', as in the lapping of waves on the shore.
