Swatch Sample & On the Needles

Posted on

My camera is on loan this weekend so I am rocking the iPhone pics. I mastered a new stitch pattern and I'm in love. I swatched this up earlier this week, it went very fast and was a lot of fun to work with.  I am working on the full piece now and there's a tight deadline to it, so you'll see more of this soon. I'll also post a how-to with the finished piece! The colors, the texture, everything about it reminds me of a vintage quilt, or something you might see at Anthropologie. A recent sale at my LYS has inspired a bunch of projects, so I have cast on several over the past week.  I scooped up some Spud & Chloë and oooh la la I really like their yarn!  I am working with their Sweater line which is a worsted weight.  On a size 7 this knits up quick and it feels so soft and sweet. I've had a lot going on this week which hasn't left me nearly as much time as I'd like for knitting, but I am hoping this weekend offers a little more free time to squeeze some in. Just gotta plant the vegetable garden first!

    I’m using Spud and Chloe (sock weight) on a summer tee now. It knits nice, but I’ve decided the texture is too plain jane for me. Love your stitch pattern!
