Another Day

Another swatch.

Ain't that right, Lisa :-)?

Vestswatch

Here's my gauge swatch for Matt's vest in the Heirloom Easy-Care 8-ply.  This isn't the softest wool that I've touched, but then again, nor is it the scratchiest.  The way that it's spun (it seems as if each ply is itself plyed) createst a loftier fabric, so it might be cooler than your typical wool.  I don't know.  Anyway, Matt likes it, so that's all that counts.

The next task will be measuring my gauge, and taking the correct number's from Ann Budd's The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns.

 

A-swatching we will go....
I think that kind of yarn is called a "cabled yarn", and it supposedly makes a yarn stronger and makes a smoother surface for knitting. Just read about this recently! (But I don't want to try spinning any of it. ;)

your swatches are indeed a work of art...you should do a swatch installation at your favorite KIP coffee joint...
